Wine of the Weekend

Domaine Hatzimichalis Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Spending so much time at home might have become a great motivator to fix up your place. Maybe you have cleaned some old boxes out of a closet, upgraded your home theatre, or finally painted that room you just never liked the colour of. Or, maybe you have just binge watched Tidying Up with Marie Kondo from the couch. Either way, we have a well-earned glass of wine for you – Domaine Hatzimichalis Cabernet Sauvignon requires no fixing up, so all you need to do is sip and enjoy. Job done.

Tasting Notes: Using 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from estate-owned vineyards, Domaine Hatzimichalis Cab shows intense black currant and blackberry along with oaky nuances of sweet spices. It’s a well-structured Cabernet Sauvignon with bold tannins, concentrated flavours and a persistent finish.

Enjoy With: Lamb burgers, ribs, grilled steak, game meats and intense hard cheeses.

Style: A dry, full-bodied, structured red wine.

Terroir/Region: The Atalanti Valley, home of the Hatzimichalis winery, runs east to west and is set between two mountain ranges, allowing sunlight to hit the vines all day long. With the surrounding mountains helping to channel and funnel cool air through the valley, the region is able to produce balanced, evenly ripened grapes and well-structured wines.

Producer: OK, what’s with the turkey on the label? The turkey stands as a tribute to the turkey farming business Dimitris Hatzimichalis (the winery’s founder and owner) ran on the original property to support the winery as it began in the 1970s. With many of his birds landing on Canadian dinner tables, you may have had one of Dimitris’ turkeys for Thanksgiving! You should probably taste his wine too.

Availability: Domaine Hatzimichalis Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is in the Greece or Eastern Europe section of your local LCBO and is also available for online ordering.  It’s also $2.00 off until July 19 and is guaranteed to improve the feng shui of any dinner table!
