A sea breeze of acidity in your glass!

Why do we love it?

Antara from the Baptists winery, shows us the diversity of the Tinian vineyard and the enormous potential it has, when planted with the right varieties and cultivated with persistence and the sole aim of making exceptional wines. Assyrtiko is a few nautical miles away from its traditional place, but in Tinos, it shows another equally explosive face that surprised us and we guarantee that you will like it a lot!

In 2013, Yiannis Moraitis, originally from Tinos, decided to revive the family vineyards in the mountain village of Steni and to highlight the Greek varieties that perfectly adapt to the unique terroir of the Cyclades. The multi-year effort led in 2016, to the first harvest of the 30 acres of vineyards and the first bottling of his wine. One of them was impossible not to be the Assyrtiko, the chameleon variety that works perfectly with the soil and climate of Tinos and gives amazing results.

Antara comes from the privately owned vineyard at an altitude of 430 meters and its sandy soil has left its mark. The wine fermented for 21 days in stainless steel tanks, to preserve the fine aromatic characteristics of the sea breeze, and then remained for 6 months in contact with the fine lees, where it acquired a complexity that is more noticeable in my mouth.

It has the acidity you expect from an Assyrtiko and the fine lemony aromas, but what will excite you is that with a single sip, you will automatically be transferred next to the wave enjoying the seafood appetizers and the taramas salad, an autumn afternoon with sun and breeze!

You can drink it now, but it will be just as great 4-5 years from now!

Tastes Like

In the glass, it is a pale lemon with golden highlights. In the aromas, wet stone is one of its most characteristic features, while lemon blossom, lime, grapefruit, bergamot, and soft peppery notes slowly unfold.

In the mouth, it has a medium body and crisp acidity. Peach, lime, citrus and a hint of saltiness compose an excellent result that particularly emphasizes its intense and long lemony aftertaste.

ΑΝΤΑΡΑ 2022 - VAPTISTIS WINERY

PAIR IT

Enjoy it with smoked eel, seafood risotto, fagri fish stew with potatoes, and a variety of salty cheeses.

Shrimps wrapped in prosciutto, with orange marmalade

  • 1/4 cup orange jam
  • 1/4 cup of white dry wine
  • 4 tsps. of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsps. of finely chopped ginger
  • 1 large clove of chopped garlic
  • 2 fresh onions finely chopped
  • 20 shrimp jumbo or medium-sized peeled (you can leave the tail)
  • 10 slices of prosciutto cut into half lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 10 wooden skewers dipped in water for 20 minutes
  • salt
  • pepper

In a medium bowl, mix the jam, white wine, lemon juice, ginger, garlic and onions. Add salt and pepper according to your taste.

Tosh the shrimps in the bowl and turn them to get fully covered with the mixture. Leave them for 20 minutes at room temperature. After 20 minutes, drain the shrimps from  the marinade.

Roll each shrimp with a slice of prosciutto. Put 2 shrimps in each skewer and carefully pierce prosciutto so that it doesn’t  get unfolded.

Preheat the grill to medium to high temperature. If we barbeque them, we are careful to roast them in a moderate fire. Dip the skewers in the marinade and bake until the prosciutto gets crispy and the shrimps opaque and slightly reddish, about 3 minutes on each side.

Secret:

Soak the wooden skewers in water (preferably hot) before putting them in the oven or the charcoal so that they won’t burn and tan while baking.
