A very expressive single vineyard Malagouzia from Amyntaio!

Why do we love it?
Malagouzia Turtles from the Alpha Estate is a very expressive white wine and captures the typicality of the variety through a very aromatic cool and slightly "green" character, which gives a very special freshness and elegance.
 
Alpha Estate has been in Amyntaio since 1997 and is a family winery bequeathed from father to son. Angelos Iatridis has impressed us with the experimental vinifications he makes with great success in Xinomavro. Still, with this wine, he has come to show us that capturing the refinement of Malagouzia also requires this mastery. So he used Malagouzia grapes from a specific vineyard called Turtles located at an altitude of 670 meters. The pre-fermentation extraction enhanced the aromas, while after fermentation, the 2-month stay with the lees gave a very enjoyable result.
 
The Malagouzia Turtles from the Alpha Estate has a rich body, is intensely aromatic, has intense freshness, and is ready for anything!

MALAGOUZIA CHELONES SINGLE VINEYARD 2022 - ALPHA ESTATE

PAIR IT

Taste it with seafood, fried fish, and white cheese

Spaghetti with shrimps, lemon and fennel

1 pack of spaghetti No6, whole-wheat
800 gr. shrimps
2 lemons
5-6 cloves of garlic
1 little bunch of fennel
ground pepper
sea salt
chili flakes
olive oil

Carefully peel and cut the shrimps’ heads. Place them in a pot with 300ml water and boil them, along with 3 cloves of garlic for 15 minutes. Then, filter the broth with a sieve, by pressing it well and keeping it warm.

At the same time, boil the spaghetti in salted water and cook them “al dente”. Take the lemon zest and chop the fennel.

In a large pan, pour 20 ml olive oil and the rest of the garlic. Once the olive oil is warm enough, remove the garlic and add the chili flakes.

Place the peeled, boiled shrimps in the hot pan and leave them for 1-2 minutes on each side. Season with salt and pepper, add a little fennel, a bit of lemon zest and pour in the lemon juice.

Remove the shrimps and in the same pan, place the spaghetti directly from the pot and increase the temperature. Add the broth you have prepared and mix well.

When the spaghetti have absorbed all the broth, sprinkle with fennel, pepper and the remaining zest. Serve the spaghetti with shrimp immediately.
