Kamara Pure Nimbus Albus 2019

Thessaloniki Area, Makedonia, GreeceDimitrios Kioutsoukis and his family decided to give up city life to be more connected to nature, moving to Thessaloniki and planting 11 ha of organically farmed vines. All of their wines are low intervention, with native ferment, no sulphur additions and bottling without fining or filtration. This 50/50 assyrtiko and malagousia blend comes from the clay and schist slopes of Kamara-Oraiokastro Thessaloniki. Each variety is vinified separately in stainless, with full MLF, before blending and resting on lees for 3 months. Pouring a hazy golden hue, with chamomile, apricot pith, white peach, quince, anise, elderflower on an oily, expansive palate, lofted with bright acidity. A lot of impact for 12.5%.Tasted: 27 January 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 33.30 LCBO Producer: Kamara EstateDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
