Westender newspaper welcomes Chinese New Year with their announcement of top 5 wines that pair well with Chinese cuisine and its fascinating palette.
Among this top 5 picks by Michaela Morris, the food columnist for Westender, there is a white wine that stand out to us and that is our very own 2015 Petit Manseng from our Casale del Giglio collection.
Here’s Michaela’s take on Petit Manseng 2015:
2015 Casale del Giglio Petit Manseng IGT • Lazio, Italy
The French grape Petit Manseng is grown on Italian soil, and is a fittingly multicultural match with pork dumplings in any of Vancouver’s outstanding Chinese restaurants. Bursting with aromas of apricot, pink grapefruit and lemon rind, it’s backed up by rich, fleshy fruit and an incredibly lively backbone. (Remember, the more dumplings you eat, the more money you’ll make and the more wine you’ll be able to afford!) Also a treat with lobster or crab in ginger.
