NIMBUS ALBUS

KAMARA PURE

Label: Nimbus Albus

Origin: Northern Greece

Region: Slopes of Kamara-Oraiokastro Thessaloniki

Variety: Malagousia-Assyrtiko (50-50% blend)

Vintage: 2017

Tasting notes:

 Bright golden colour with greenish highlights recalls the colour of a fino sherry. Rich, intense nose, with all natural flavours evolving in mouth. A robust botanical sense combined with stone fruits, leaving in the finish earthy expression with hints of frankincense, lavender and chamomile. The fine alcoholic expression is perfectly harmonious with the low acidity in the palate.

Winemaking report:

Each variety ferments separately in stainless steel tanks (controlled fermentation temperature 18º- 21º C) with indigenous yeasts, no oenological substances added. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation. The produced wines are mixed, racked from the very dense sediments and sur-lie on fine lees for three months. No protein stabilization, only tartaric stabilization. The maceration before the fermentation lasts 1-2 days depending on the year in low temperature (5-8ο  C).

Aging potential:

Potential age up to 5 years. Bottled with a natural cork closure, in order to ensure a unique aging capacity. Ideal serving temperature between 12-16ο C.

Food matches:

The wine match with risotto, cream cheese, grilled chicken, green salad, Mediterranean dishes.
