A very special new cuvee from one of the finest producer on the island of Santorimi. The Nykteri is traditionally harvested at night, and "working through the night" is the standard translation of this term. Compsed of Assyrtiko from very old vines, this top quality fruit selection has been used to make a delicious spin on the traditional style. Drink or cellar. Very rare in retail!
$84.99 in mixed 6+ or $94.99 per bottle



Its Origins

The original 5 acre estate was established by Georgios Argyros on the Greek Island of Santorini. In 1974, after decades of supplying the local market, the founder’s Grandson Yiannis Argyros took over and expanded the estate to 65 acres, while modernising viticulture and winemaking to ensure the quality that would enable an export market. Even so, his son and current owner Matthew Argyros still follows this vision of elevated cosmopolitan standards with a strict respect for their ancient and distinctive tradition, with low-growing bush vines up to 300 years old still cultivated in the traditional ‘crown’ style, and Vinsanto grape dried outdoors on the ground in a unique manner that would be inconceivable in less profoundly dry, sun-baked regions of the world. From Santorini’s famous mineral soils, Argyros Estate presents a glimpse at one of the world’s oldest yet most overlooked winemaking traditions. But it also offers some of Europe’s most newly available, distinctive and minerally complex wines for the price.
