Malaysian with Simon Goh
This mixed pack contains 5 bottles of wine as listed below and Special Love and Happiness Cocktail
Gooree Park Verdelho, 2019 ($24.00 – order here)
The richness of the rice and sauce with our Hainanese chicken rice calls for a fuller-bodied white wine such as verdelho. The grapes for Gooree Park are grown in Canowindra, in central western NSW, where the warm climate echoes that of verdelho’s ancestral homeland of Portugal.
Knee Deep Sauvignon Blanc, 2020 ($23.99 – order here)
The crisp acid in this Margaret River classic cuts through the oil in the tofu ria sauce, while notes of passionfruit, gooseberry and tropical fruit match the sweetness and balance the spice. There’s a touch of semillon to round out the sauv blanc and a hint of vanilla from French oak too.
Cantina Santa Maria La Palma – Le Bombarde Cannanou di Sardegna DOC ($40.15 – order here)
Slippery, spicy rice noodles with strips of wagyu and garlic chives are perfect with a glass of mid-weight cannonau, such as this one from Alghero on Sardinia’s west coast where the grape vines grow almost all the way down to the sea. Soft tannins marry with the rich wagyu, while fruit flavours balance the sweet soy and oyster sauces.
Brockenchack Mackenzie William 1896 Riesling, 2018 ($25.00 – order here)
South Australia is undeniably Australia’s home of riesling with Clare Valley often in the limelight. However I think the slightly fruitier Eden Valley rieslings work a treat alongside spicy dishes like our sambal kang kong. There’s plenty of acid and a lovely touch of aged notes on the nose.
Bosca Asti Spumante DOCG ($19.00 – order here)
I love a glass of bubbles alongside anything deep-fried to cut through the richness of the oil. This gentle fizz from Piedmont, in Italy’s northwest, has a touch of fruity sweetness to balance the banana and castor sugar too.
Plus our Special Love + Happiness Cocktail
We’ve taken Nardini Cedro liqueur which we love and blended it with some gin for happiness. We’ll send you a bottle of StrangeLove Bitter Lemon Tonic to add and a couple of dehydrated lime slices for garnish. Guaranteed to get your evening of to a happy start!
