The powerful Assyrtiko from... Mesogeia!

SEND PAGE TO FRIEND

Why do we love it?

Thέros Markou Vineyards is a very special Assyrtiko from Mesogeia! The fruit is slightly riper, the acidity is more balanced and the notes of wet stone are framed by the earthy notes of the amphora.

The new generation of one of the most historic wineries of Attica, that of Markou Vineyards, is working with Savvatiano and other important Greek grape varieties. And when you hear important grape varieties the first that comes to mind is Assyrtiko. With this thought but also the different aromatic profile that Assyrtiko gives when it’s cultivated in Attica, Thέros Markou Vineyards was created. Assyrtiko is harvested at the right time and after careful sorting it fermented in stainless steel tanks, at controlled temperatures. Then part of the wine aged for 2 months in a clay amphoras, giving a more earthy dimension to the wine.

Enjoy Thέros Markou Vineyards with seafood appetizers and enjoy it to the fullest!

THΕROS 2020 - MARKOU VINEYARDS

PAIR IT

Pair it with fried calamari, roasted anchovies with oregano, wild greens pie

Calamari fritters with ouzo batter

Fresh calamari tentacles

For the batter:

2 stamens of Kozani's saffron
30 ml. Ouzo
1 teaspoon orange zest
250 ml. soda water
Thyme
Self rising flour
Salt

For the Dressing:

1 teaspoon mustard, mild
Lemon juice
Orange juice
60 ml. olive oil
Olive oil or canola oil for frying

For the ouzo aromatic batter:

In a bowl put ouzo with saffron to soak for 5 minutes. Add all the ingredients, except the flour, to the bowl and mix well. Finally, add, by stirring continuously, the flour, until you get a thick batter, which will stand on the tentacles.

For the dressing:

Beat all ingredients in a shaker or blender until you get a thick sauce. Add 1 to 2 saffron stamens before serving.

For the croquettes:

Put enough olive or canola oil in a pan to heat up. Flourish the tentacles, which you have drained well. Put the tentacles into the batter one by one and with the help of a fork, pour them into the hot olive or canola oil creating croquettes. Fry on both sides until golden. Put the croquettes on absorbent paper, to remove the excess of olive oil.
Serve while they are hot with the dressing.
