PRODUCER: What happens when an entire family is passionate for nature? They abandon city life and move to countryside. This is the story of Kioutsoukis family (Dimitrios, Eleftheria and their children). Dimitrios Kioutsoukis with his family assistance and inspiration planted 11 hectars of vines (mainly Greek grape varieties: Assyrtiko, Malagousia, Roditis, Xinomavro) in northern Greece near Thessaloniki, an area well known from ancient times for its wines.
All Kamara pure wines are naturally fermented with indigenous yeasts , have no oenological substances added and they are bottled without filtration and no added sulfites.
WINEMAKING: Before the fermentation, a cold maceration(5-8ο C) takes place for almost 2 days, depending on the year. After that, the must ferments in stainless steel tanks in controlled temperature(18-21ο C) with indigenous yeasts and no oenological substances added. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation. The produced wine racked for the very dense sediments and undergoes battonage on fine lees for three months. No protein stabilization, only tartaric stabilization.
TASTING NOTES: Bright golden colour. Rich, intense nose which evolves minute after minute into the glass. The aromas of pear and quince reveal at the beginning giving their place to the aromas of sage, achillea and laurel afterwards. Harmonious in the the mouth with a longlasting aftertaste.
