Trofie seafood pasta with garlic and chilli

This beautiful dish was created to match our new release white wine, Alvarinho, by Matthieu and Erica Miller of Milkin Kitchen. This seafood dish is zesty and refreshing, just like the wine.

Erica said when she first tried the Alvarinho she adored the flavours and knew seafood would be the perfect match. "Trofie pasta is Matt's favourite pasta as you can get it perfectly al denté quite quickly, and it's much more interesting than spaghetti," she says. "We felt the salty, zesty flavours of the dish matched the wine so well".
