Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Kamara Pure Shadow Play

Kamara Pure Shadow Play 2018

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. From sandy clay schists, at 140m altitude, this xinomavro was native fermented and aged for one year in older barrels. Wild and untamed with grippy tannins framing cassis, anise, schistous dust to a drying finish. The freshness keeps this lofted, thankfully. Best at this point with roast pork or root veg, but will settle with time in bottle.Tasted: 27 January 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 36.95 LCBO Producer: Kamara EstateDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
