After the success of Hoof & Lur, a second blockbuster rises!

Why do we love it?

Route Gris Troupis Winery is a unique wine! Literally unique, since it is a rose Greek wine from Moschofilero, with a character reminiscent of orange wine, which has aged both in acacia barrels and concrete tanks! It is actually a white wine, but its 5-month maturation with the skins, transforms it into an impressive hybrid! You have never tried something like this before, for sure.

The experiments at Troupis Winery, in Fteri, Arcadia, started with Hoof & Lur, an orange wine from Moschofilero. This experiment led to a resounding success (it's one of the best wines under $ 20 according to the New York Times) and so they took things one step further. Moschofilero grapes come from the Katarachi vineyard, at 640 meters, with extremely low acreage yields. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tank and old acacia barrels. After the end of fermentation, the wine matured with the skins, in concrete tanks, for 5 months. From the incredible bottle to the glass, Route Gris Troupis Winery will make you see Moschofilero with different eyes and fall madly in love with it.

The bottles are very few and they are definitely not enough for everyone! Hurry up!

It has an amazing, pale rose color and a riveting nose. Imagine the floral character of Moschofilero on steroids! So intense! Turkish delight, rose, kumquat, dried strawberry, quince, icing sugar, brioche, tangerine zest, apricot jam, lemon and honeysuckle overflow from the glass. In the mouth it has medium body, sharp acidity and a hint of tannins. Orange jam, bergamot, bitter orange, pomegranate, white cherry, strawberry, lychee, rose, orange blossom, toast and ginger compose a very impressive ensemble.

PAIR IT

with chicken with mango, octopus with tubetti half pasta in the oven, salmon with orange glaze or hot salad with pumpkin, finokio and goat cheese.

 

Οctopus with tubetti half pasta in the oven.

1 big octopus
250 gr. tubetti half pasta
1 big onion 
1 teaspoon tomato paste
150 gr. tomato sauce or concasse tomato 
50 ml. cognac
1 teaspoon of sugar
2 bay leaves                                                                                            3-4 grains of all spice
1 small cinnamon stick
Freshly ground pepper
Salt
Olive oil
1.100 ml. hot vegetable or seafood broth or water

In a saucepan, put the octopus, with a bay leaf, to braise over low heat. The octopus will release its liquids, especially if it is frozen, to boil but if necessary add a little hot water. When it is softened and red, remove it from the fire and cut it into small pieces.

Chop the onion and saute it to 50 ml. olive oil along with the octopus, for 3-4 minutes. Then, put in the cognac, add the spices and the other bay leaf. Add the tomato paste, sugar, tomatoes or sauce and a cup of broth or water. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Transfer to a moderate baking dish, add the remaining hot broth or water, 50 ml. olive oil and stir. Taste it and add salt if necessary.
Bake in a well preheated oven at 175 ° C for about 25 minutes or until the pasta is cooked, stirring regularly.

Serve the pasta with the octopus hot as soon as it comes out of the oven!
