Origin: North Greece

Appellation: PGI Thessaloniki

Region: Slopes of Kamara, Oraiokastro Thessaloniki

Variety: Xinomavro-Merlot-Limnio(40-20-40% blend)

History of the label: This label pictures the view of our vineyard from the balcony of our winery during a hot summer afternoon when sun begins to set. Its name means red cloud following our Nimbus series concept. This label, as all of our labels, is painted by Stavroula’s hands.

Tasting notes:

Intense ruby – red colour with purple highlights. In the nose, the fruit expression is impressive with berries, dogwoods, plums and liquorice combined with notes of eucalyptus, black olives and intense black pepper. In the mouth the impressive spicy taste of black and green pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg are complemented by earthy notes of fresh soil, and hints of dark chocolate. Velvety rounded tannins due to the 12 months ageing in old oak barrels.
