Koutsogiorgakis Kamares White is a nice introduction to white wines of Greece. It comes from Evia, the second largest Greek island after Crete. Homer referred to this region as "Polystafyllos Istiaia," meaning plenty of wine. The ancient God of wine in Greek mythology, Dionysos, was illustrated on ancient coins of the region as well. The Koutsogiorgakis Winery was founded to cultivate old traditional wine grape varieties native to the region. Asprouda is a rare indigenous variety, found only in northern Evia. Kamares is made of 70% Assyrtiko and 30% Asprouda.
Koutsogiorgakis Kamares White offers a lovely golden color with a complex floral bouquet and a long yet delicate finish. Only 1850 bottles were produced.
Enjoy Koutsogiorgakis Kamares White with grilled or oven baked seafood, light pasta dishes and mildly sharp cheeses.
