White wine paring with Xiamen's renowned cuisine
The lineup of white wines
Zonin Prosecco, Dr Loosen Riesling from Mosel, Vidal Pinot Gris, Elephant Hill Sauvignon Blanc, Joseph Mellot Sancerre, Framingham F Series Sauvignon Blanc, Framingham Noble Riesling.
Pan-seared crispy prawns found a perfect partner in the Dr Loosen Riesling as well as the Joseph Mellot Sancerre.
Tusundong - sea worm jelly - which again worked very well with the Dr Loosen Riesling and Joseph Mellot Sancerre as well as Vidal Pinot Gris.
Chinese stuffed sausage was delicious with the Elephant Hill Sauvignon Blanc, Joseph Mellot Sancerre and Framingham F Sauvignon Blanc.
The Crispy pork with crumbs was a popular choice with nearly all the wines from Prosecco, Riesling, Sancerre and Elephant Hill Sauvignon Blanc from Hawkes Bay and Framingham's F, a big MLF, spicy, pungent Sauv from Marlborough.
Caiguo - deep fried pork intestines! with a sweet, almost caramel sauce that was an instant success with Framingham's noble Riesling.
