Tasting notes
Tasting notes: Deep, bright ruby colour. Complex bouquet in the nose where aromas of ‘juicy’ red fruits and characteristic, light vegetal and earthy notes are combined harmoniously with the slightly spicy character and the vanilla hints framed by oak flavors. Dense aromas of red fruits and tobacco are present in the mouth. A luscious, rich and lively wine with velvety power and generosity. 
Food pairing – Serving temperature:A wonderful accompaniment to Greek and Oriental cuisine. Try it with pork with red cabbage, dishes with wild mushrooms and mild cheeses. Best served at 16 – 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.
