SHADOW PLAY WHITE

KAMARA PURE

Label: Shadow play white

Origin: North Greece

Appellation: PGI Thessaloniki

Region: Slopes of Kamara-Oraiokastro Thessaloniki

Variety: Assyrtiko 100%

History of the label: Onto the label someone can see a scene of the greek traditional shadow theater, called Karagiozis. Karagiozis was the greek guy who was always against the rich conquerors who were the responsible for the deterioration of the conquered country. Like Karagiozis the natural wines “fight” against the conventional wines which are part of the biggest problem of our world, the deterioration of the nature.

 

Tasting notes:

 Bright golden color. Rich, intense nose which evolves minute after minute into the glass. The aromas of pear and quince reveal at the beginning giving their place to the aromas of sage, achillea and laurel afterwards. Harmonious in the mouth with a long-lasting aftertaste.
