The Nimbus Russus from Kamara Estate is the story of Kioutsoukis family (Dimitrios, Eleftheria and their children). Dimitrios Kioutsoukis with his family assistance and inspiration planted 11 hectares of vines in northern Greece near Thessaloniki, an area well known from ancient times for its wines. Dimitrios (a chemical engineer – UC Davis winemaking) and his daughter Stavroula ( an agronomist – oenologist) carrying on the family tradition and passionate about permaculture principles use more than organic methods in viticulture and winemaking. Their main goal is to give birth to wines versatile, unique that express both their philosophy and the terroir. Seeking the real taste of the life they created the Kamara pure wines, low intervention wines (natural wines).
The Nimbus Russus is an intense ruby – red colour with purple highlights. On the nose, the fruit expression is impressive with berries, dogwoods, plums and liquorice combined with notes of eucalyptus, black olives and intense black pepper. On the palate, there is an impressive spicy taste of black and green pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg which 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. Potential age up to 10 years. Bottled with a natural cork closure, in order to ensure a unique ageing capacity. The Russus pairs perfectly with hunting dishes, rib eye, pork on the spit and cuttlefish in a wine sauce, or for the vegans out there – an aubergine dish would be perfect.
