Wine rich ruby red color with purple highlights.
The taste of wine reveals rich spicy shades of black and green pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg, against which tones of chocolate and earth come out.
The intense aroma of the wine impresses with an abundance of shades of berries, dogwood, plums and licorice, combined with notes of eucalyptus, olives and black pepper.
The wine will be a great gastronomic addition to dishes of venison, ribeye, spit pork, cuttlefish in wine sauce.
Dry red wine Kamara Pure, "Nimbus Russus", Thessaloniki PGI is created from a blend of Xinomavro, Syrah and Merlot grapes grown in the organic vineyards of Thessaloniki terroir. After manual harvesting as the grapes reach their maximum ripeness, Merlot and Syrah are vinified together, Xinomavro separately. Fermentation starts spontaneously, without the addition of artificial cultures of yeast and other substances. The finished wine is blended and aged on the lees in oak barrels for 12 months, acquiring a velvety structure and a rounded, rich taste due to regular breading.
2016 turned out to be magnificent for the Thessaloniki terroir. The winter was very mild and the buds on the vine bloomed quite early. It rained heavily in May and June, but the grape ovaries did not suffer due to the abundance of natural herbs growing in the vineyards next to the vines. Hot summers contributed to the accumulation of phenolic substances and sugar in berries.
The Kiosukis family, who moved to Northern Greece at the beginning of the 20th century, for a long time could not afford to build their own winery, therefore, was content with growing grapes and creating wine exclusively for their own consumption. Young Dimitrios, the current owner of the farm, worked in the vineyards from childhood and grew up with the desire to become a winemaker. The dream began to be realized in 2007 with the planting of 9 hectares of local autochthonous vineyards and the construction of the Kamara winery three years later. Today, the area of planting of vines expanded to 11 hectares, organic methods of viticulture are practiced.
In winemaking, Dimitros also adheres to minimal interference in the processes. The owner of the farm and his eldest daughter, Stavrola, who also draws labels, are responsible for creating the wines.
