The wine is, unsurprisingly, lively and brisk with fresh citrus, orange,and the snap of jasmine flower to the nose. To the mouth the tastes of rose and yeast are predominant. The crown cap holds in the fizz.
They let the must of Muscat with the skins for some days in cool temperature before the fermentation and during the fermentation. After the end of fermentation we put the wine (of Muscat) into small amphoras for some months. The next year they add fermented must of Moschofilero to the wine in bottle. This provides the sparkle and lees-y feel as it gets turned into alcohol and CO2, and not disgorging makes it hazy, creating broader palate weight, pleasing textures, and balance throughout. This special bottling is done entirely by hand. No sulfites added, no protein stabilization, no filtration, no fining.
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.
Dimitrios (chemical engineer- UC Davis winemaking) and his daughter Stavroula ( agronomist- oenologist) carrying on the family tradition and passionate about permaculture principles use more than organic methods in viticulture and winemaking. Their main goal is to give birth to wines versatile, unique that express both their philosophy and the terroir.
Seeking the real taste of life they created the Kamara pure wines, low intervention wines (natural wines).
