Protected Geographical Indication Atalanti Valley

Type: White, dry

Grape Varieties:
100% Chardonnay

Origin: Exclusively from 2,5 hectares from the selected single vineyard ‘Zygos’, part of the private owned vineyard of Domaine Hatzimichalis in Atalanti, Central Greece. The average age of the single vineyard is 29 years old.

Vinification: 100% barrel-fermented in new, French oak barriques. After fermentation, the wine is gently stirred (bâtonnage) during the eight months of aging on fine lees. This classic technique enhances the aromatic richness and complexity.

Alcoholic strength: 14% Vol

Ageing potential: Remarkable personality with excellent ageing potential. Enjoy it now or within the next 5-6 years after its harvest.

Tasting notes: A charming barrel-aged Chardonnay with a multilevel aromatic profile dominated by the gentle presence of wood. Intense aromas of white peach, nectarine and exotic fruits, mingle with scents of vanilla and toasty nuances. Rich and luscious with concentrated flavours, excellent density, creamy texture and impressive, lengthy finish.

Food pairings – Serving temperature: This Chardonnay can stand up to rich flavours. Try it with grilled or roast shellfish like lobster and scallops, fine rich fish and white meat with buttery sauces. Best served at 10-12 ºC.
