Muscat (specify red or white) and Hanepoot () Unwooded non-vintage or 2020 and older
A bright lemon yellow coloured wine with lime tinged rim; the bouquet leaps from the glass with intense ripe Hanepoot grapes, pineapple, lemon rind, litchi and winter melon intermingled with hints of jasmine, honey suckle and faint spicy notes. A lusciously sweet, mouth-watering palate of crammed full of fresh Sultana, honey, litchi, melon, fig leaf, lemon and lime marmalade undercurrents, all buoyed by zippy acidity and lingering hints of citrus rind and subtle minerality.
A versatile food-friendly fortified wine can be served with a host of comforting Cantonese cuisine; spicy Indian or Thai dishes; as an aperitif with canapés or pates; as accompaniment to roast duck or pork; as partner to decadent desserts – Sautéed Apricots with Vanilla syrup, fresh summer fruits
or a selection of mild soft cheeses, alternatively serve as digestive, over crushed ice in
a martini glass or as mixer for a myriad of cocktails.
