From the grower
"Light yellow color, with its base unique standing out it is a bottle for high quality wines.When you smell it, you can easily descry citrus fruits and pergamot scents, with a nice jasmine feeling and herbal characteristics(yarrow, wild herbal).At the end it leaves you with the scent of green apple and lime. It is a wine for those who can wait, which aromas are highlighted after a while and last for a long time.After tasting it there is a long-lasting metallity(as a result of Xinimavro), with a diffuse mineral and an amazing feeling a saltness."

Additional Information

Each grape variety ferments individually, harvest in low alcohol volume so that the acidity and fresh scents do not fade away. After that we blend both the varieties together and doing sur-lie with their own fine-lees for at least 3 months. There is no protein stabilization, only tartrate stabilization. The oenological interventions are minimum, and the bottling is done later during next spring with no added sulfites. Stalisma in Greek is the rest of the herd in a shady place on summer afternoons where a cool air passes. Our stalisma wines are like that. They are so refreshing, like the cool fresh air during the hot summer afternoons.
something
When the Kioutsoukis family migrated from East Romylia in the early 1900’s -a region at the Black Sea coast well known for its wine- to Greece, carried with them the embedded knowledge and the passion for the vineyard and the wine. Unfortunately, they could not fulfill their dream to build a winery in Greece until Dimitrios Kioutsoukis, the grandchild, did it in 2010. Dimitrios Kioutsoukis received his degree as a chemical engineer from the Polytechnic School of Thessaloniki and worked for several years in the medical field- in order to obtain the needed money to fulfill the dream of his life. The family inherited wine passion led him to take the UC Davis Oenology Extention program in order to go beyond embedded and tacit knowledge and obtain the explicit knowledge as well about winemaking. He planted with his family’s assistance about 11 hectars of vineyards in the slopes of Mygdonia in Northern Greece, near Thessaloniki, where vines were planted from ancient times, but vine cultivation was abandoned since 1900 due to phylloxera. In the self owned vineyard mainly greek grape varieties are planted (Assyrtiko, Malagousia, Roditis, Xinomavro). The low hillside along with the micro climate (a refreshing northern wind is present all year round), and the different types of soil -from clay sand to lighter with small stones and schists- gives exquisite wines with excellent ageing potentials. From the very beginning, the vineyards are exclusively treated with the long-standing traditions, some of which have almost been forgotten.Manual pruning- hoeing – harvesting, use of herb sprays,such as nettle, yarrow etc, natural fertilization with compost and manure- newly planted vines shaped in basket crowns. The basic rule is doing as few treatments as possible, trying not to subvert the natural equilibrium. Using modern wine-making equipment, only to monitor and support (if necessary) the natural chemistry of the wine-making cycle, Kamara winery produces wines with a unique character that express the terroir without lowering the quality standards. From 2015 Dimitrios, seeking the real taste of life that he learned from his grandfather, took a step forward to natural wine making in a large scale production. “Nature is the real winemaker, man is her assistant” therefore the wines are produced following the traditional way, manipulated gently and slowly in order not to shock or spoil the wine’s character: no added yeasts, few or no rackings at all, wine matured on fine lees, light or no filtration, well-integrated wood,using only old barrels etc. The main goal is authentic vibrant wines in small productions, with the fewest possible interventions ,that express the terroir and the philosophy of the winemaker with a broad spectrum of flavors and a complex aromatic profile that evolves and changes constantly.
