If Greek wines aren’t on your radar, this gorgeous (and age-worthy!) white exclusive will change things. Coming to you from the wind-swept, sun-drenched, volcanic isle of Santorini, Nykteri is a partially barrel-aged blend of local grapes Assyrtiko, Athiri and Aidani. It sports double 92-point ratings from The Wine Advocate and Wine & Spirits, plus a glowing review from The Chicago Tribune, who called it “a beautiful blend … floral, herbal and smoky, with tart green apple and lively, tongue-dancing acidity. An interesting wine, for sure.” We can’t wait for you to taste for yourself.
The name ‘Nykteri’ comes from the local word for ‘staying up all night,’ a nod to the Santorini tradition of harvesting and pressing grapes late in the evening. All that night-owl dedication has really paid off for the Santo Wines team, too – since 2008, every vintage of Nykteri has won at least one major medal. (They may be the largest estate on this small island, but their tireless dedication to quality always shines through in the glass.)
