Why do we love it?

It has been named "one of the best and most sophisticated Greek white wines" many times. It is certainly one of those that have put the Anatolikos Vineyard and the two brothers Nikolaidis in the big lounges of Greek (and not only) wine and the most hip cellars.

In a combination that tends to become the most classical of the Greek vineyard, Assyrtiko and Malagouzia, two flagship Greek varieties meet once again in a somewhat unequal relationship (90% Assyrtiko - 10% Malagouzia). Assyrtiko adds the intensity and charm. The Malagouzia rounds corners and brings finesse to new levels. If you consider that the fermentation takes place with indigenous wild yeast and then the blend remains for six months in French oak barrels of fine lees, things get very interesting.

Fine Assyrtiko & Malagouzia 2016 by Anatolikos Vineyards from Avdera in Thrace is a white show stopper wine at international fairs and gathers both attention and awards where found it is showcased. It has already started.

Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy it now unless you have the patience to let it evolve for 2-3 more years.

Naaah ...

AM FINE ASSYRTIKO & MALAGOUZIA 2016 - ANATOLIKOS VINEYARDS

PAIR IT

Combine with grilled shrimp, grilled chicken or white cheese

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.
