Kamara Pure Rosé 'Stalisma'
Xinomavro, Malagouzia, Assyrtiko
Oraiokastro, Oraiokastro, Greece
This is Rosé, but not as we know it. The wine ferments with indigenous yeasts and is aged in old barrels for two months with some battonage —profound nice Rosé colour from 100% Xinomavro and sulfite-free. The nose is characteristic of the Xinomavro variety: sun-dried tomatoes and black olives. Hints of strawberry and blackberry complete this impressive bouquet. In the mouth, rich, with intense and noticeable but well-balanced acidity. In the end, a long persistent fruity aftertaste with little residual sugar leaves an impressive ‘Greek summer’ sensation but perfect any time of year.
Father and Daughter Team
What happens when an entire family is passionate about nature? They abandon city life and move to the countryside. This is the story of the Kioutsoukis family (Dimitrios, Eleftheria and their children). Dimitrios Kioutsoukis with his family assistance and inspiration planted 11 hectares 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.
Dimitrios, a chemical engineer with a degree from the University of California Davis in winemaking and his daughter Stavroula (agronomist-oenologist) carry on the family tradition. They are passionate about permaculture principles using more organic methods in viticulture and winemaking. Their main goal is to give birth to wines that are versatile,unique, and that express both their philosophy and the terroir.
Seeking the real taste of life they created Kamara pure, low intervention natural wines. All Kamara pure wines are naturally fermented with indigenous yeasts, have no oenological substances added and are bottled without filtration and no added sulfites.
"Made from a blend of one red grape (Xinomavro), and two white varieties (Malagouzia and Assyrtiko), this is a crowd-pleasing fruit-filled rosé with wild strawberries and redcurrants. Fried fish and summer salads sound ideal matches."
