STALISMA WHITE

KAMARA PURE

 

Label: Stalisma white

Origin: Northern Greece

Appellation: PGI Thessaloniki

Region: Slopes of Kamara, Oraiokastro Thessaloniki

Variety: Malagousia-Xinomavro blanc de noir (80-20% blend)

History of the label: 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.

 

Tasting notes:

Light yellow color.When someone smells it, they can easily distinguish citrus fruits and pergamot scents, with a nice jasmine feeling and herbal characteristics(yarrow, wild oegano).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 minerality(as a result of Xinimavro),  and an amazing salty feeling.

Winemaking report:

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.

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 white meat as well as with fish,.It is combined really good with   pasta and lot of vegan foods.
