Tasting notes
Tasting notes: Deep and dense red color. Charming, multidimensional aromatic profile where aromas of ripe black fruits like plums, are combined with hints of cedar wood and sweet spices. The presence of wood is intense but it is counterbalanced completely by the dense fruity character. In the mouth it presents ideal balance as the robust tannins are ‘dressed up’ with the fruit and warmth lines of vanilla and caramel. Firm tannins and a long persistent finish.
Food pairing – Serving temperature: Enjoy it with fine food. The roast lamb is undoubtedly its ideal partner. Try it with roast red meat, game and semi-hard cheeses. Best served at 18 °C.
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.
