Vietnamese with Mark Jensen
This mixed pack contains 4 bottles of wine as listed below, 2 x 330ml Beer 333 and a cocktail for two
Majolini Franciacort Brut Rose ($65.00 – order here)
A Vietnamese 333 beer is a great accompaniment to fresh rice paper rolls (and we’re sending you a couple), but I prefer a glass of sparkling Franciacorta, like the organic brut rosé from Majolini not least because its pretty colour echoes that of the pink prawns in the rolls!
Borgo Magredo Sauvignon Blanc 2019 ($28.00 – order here)
This aromatic sauvignon blanc from Borgo Magredo harmonizes beautifully with the marinade in Mark’s Five-spice Quail, while the balanced acid cuts through the richness really well.
Gooree Park White Fences 2019 ($24 – order here)
You’ll need a fruity wine to match the sweetness of our Caramelized Clay Pot Salmon and this sauvignon blanc from Mudgee works perfectly with its floral notes, fruit-forward palate and dry finish.
Bosca Asti Secco DOCG, 2019 ($22 – order here)
Our classic Vietnamese Coconut Crème Caramel is especially delicious with a glass of this dry sparkling wine from Piemonte, its creamy bead echoes the creamy custard perfectly.
Two x 333 Premium Export Beers ($12 – order here)
Many Vietnamese words are challenging for westerners to pronounce … luckily all you need to say to get a beer is ba ba ba, meaning 333, the name of Vietnam’s best-known beer. Brewed in Ho Chi Minh City using a traditional German lager recipe, 333 was popular with American GIs during the 60s and 70s and is a great way to start your vicarious Vietnamese holiday.
Mekong Sunrise Cocktail for two (RRP $32)
Set the scene for an evening of Vietnamese feasting with our refreshing muddle of poor man’s orange and mint topped with cedro liqueur, vodka and a splash of soda.
