Tasting notes
Tasting notes: The expression of the multipurpose variety of Assyrtiko in the single vineyard ‘Alepotrypa’ reveals an extremely attractive wine. A sharp, lemony wine with bright and light yellow color, citrus aromas, nuances of minerality and some white flower notes. Rich mouth feel with high acidity, mouthwatering with aromas of peach and nectarine. Intense and long aftertaste.

Domaine Hatzimichalis

The Domaine Hatzimichalis has chosen to serve a unique ecosystem.This lies in Opountia Locris, a site in the valley of Atalanti in Central Greece which is surrounded by Mt. Knimida to the north, Mt. Chlomo to the south, Mt. Parnassus to the west and the northern Eubean Gulf to the east. The main natural trait of this ecosystem and its uniqueness is the cool breezes that flow from Mt Parnassus to the sea and vice-versa, in summer and winter alike.
This is the setting for the four blocks of terroirs of Domaine Hatzimichalis: the Old Vineyards, the Lower Vineyards, the Upper Vineyards –all known for centuries as localities and vine-growing sites– and New Vineyards, the terroirs created by the Domaine Hatzimichalis. Each of these blocks is divided into individual terroirs, and these in turn into different sections where we systematically cultivate different grape varieties.
