Keramos amphora orange

KAMARA PURE

Label: Keramos orange

Origin: Northern Greece

Region: Slopes of Kamara-Oraiokastro Thessaloniki

Variety: Assyrtiko-White Muscat (80-20% blend)

History of the label:

The label of KERAMOS wines is inspired from the ancient Greek history and depicts the meeting that Alexander the Great had with the cynic philosopher Diogenes. The philosophy of Diogenes was “Less is more” and, for this reason he lived in an amphora instead of a house. For the Cynics and for us, the purpose of life is to live in virtue, in agreement with nature.

Tasting notes:

 Bright orange color with golden highlights. Rich, intense nose, with all natural flavors evolving in mouth. Fresh wine, easy drinkable, low on alcohol and round taste. The aromas of orange and citrus blend with an elegant minerality. High acidity and long aftertaste.
