Kapnias | White 750ml Domaine Hatzimichalis

Harvested from our Zygos vineyard, 350 meters (1,150 feet) above sea level, Kapnias White is our lowest-yielding white variety.
Manufacturer: Domaine Chatzimichalis
SKU: EL1521

Harvested from our Zygos vineyard, 350 meters (1,150 feet) above sea level, Kapnias White is our lowest-yielding white variety. No irrigation systems are used at this vineyard in order to increase concentration. After fermenting and maturing for 8 months in French oak barriques by method of batonnage, this wine stays 12+ months in cellars.

Tasting of the most eloquently smokey Chardonnay, our Kapnias White wine is best enjoyed in the next 5-10 years.

Nose

Pronounced aromas of tropical fruits, almonds, butter, toast, butterscotch, and vanilla.

Palate

Very complex flavors confirm the nose. Creamy texture, balanced acidity, full body, pronounced flavors, and long finish. Aging adds some tertiary characteristics such as dry fruits and toffee.

Best served at 10-13ºC.

ProducerHatzimichali (Estate)
Manufacturer DescriptionVarietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay
Origin: Exclusively from 25 acres, from the selected Vineyard "Zygos", part of our privately owned vineyard in Atalanti Lokridas.
Vinification: Fermentation takes place in new, French oak barrels, with a capacity of 228 lt. It remains in them for its maturation for 8 months in contact with the lees, applying occasional stirring (bâtonnage technique) thus gaining in complexity and richness of aromas.
Tasting: Bright, golden-yellow color. Charming and multi-layered aromatic ensemble dominated by the gentle presence of wood. Aromas of exotic fruits, peach and nectarine blend harmoniously with aromas of vanilla, honey, butterscotch, and toasted bread. Rich, oily in the mouth with a velvety almost creamy texture, wonderful structure and excellent balance, abundant fruit and an impressive buttery finish.
Aging Power: Shows great aging ability. Enjoy it now or within the next 5-6 years.
Serving: Enjoy chilled, at 12-14 °C.
Harmony: Its complex taste seeks rich dishes. Accompany it with lobster cooked in butter, oily fish with sauce or grilled, white meats with rich sauces and semi-hard yellow cheeses.
