External Reviews for Hatzidakis Winery Assyrtiko Santorini Nykteri
The most interesting thing about the Assyrtiko that grows on Santorini, aside from the wines that are produced from it, is that the vines are trained in a spiral basket formation, which protects the grapes against the incredible heat of the island. Citrusy, minerally, and made accompany grilled octopus. This is a richer and riper style of Santorini white than many, but the citric acidity and the piercing minerality are pronounced and tame the wine's richness.

Color: The wine comes out in a yellow color, which proves thematuration in the barrels, and with golden shades Nose: Pleasant with wood and vanillin aromas. Mouth: Appears rich, with well-balanced acidity. Pairs with white meat and creamy sauces, fish, spaghetti, yellow cheese. - Winery
