Looking for an unconventional, festive wine pairing experience? Tsui Hang Village is collaborating with Pinewood Wine again for this Dragon Boat Festival to take you on a brand new culinary experience. Savour the “East Meets West” sticky rice dumplings and pair with Bordeaux white wine to complement the contrasting yet harmonious flavour. This special combination for its namesake, being a Chinese (eastern) delicacy filled with western ingredients. To those with a more sophisticated palette, this is certainly an unconventional way to eat prosciutto, but it works!
今年端午節想搞搞新意思? 翠亨邨同 Pinewood Wine 再次聯乘推出中西合壁口味端陽糭品酒套裝，配搭法國波爾多AOC 級別白酒，展開全新的美饌體驗。大家在西餐店都會經常食到用巴馬火腿、辣肉腸、芝士製作的薄餅及意粉，但包在糭子內肯定是第一次，相信會為你帶來驚喜!
The ingredients blend perfectly, keeping the essence of savoury zongzi in harmony as a salty, meaty and rich delicacy. The eastern elements only complimented the western ingredients. The lotus leaf gave a nutty flavour that worked well with the cheese and meat.
At the end, when swallowing, the mouth is left coated in glutinous rice starch, which can be cleansed with our new and exclusive Grand Reyne Blanc. It pairs perfectly with the East-Meets-West zongzi. The wine has a slight sharpness which is exactly what is needed to get the palate fresh and ready for your next bite. The citrusy notes and light body became more pronounced with the salty food. The two pair perfectly with each other.
最後，喝一口我們獨家嘅法國波爾多 AOC級別 金龍船白酒，其厚實的酒體在口腔中形成一股甜味，散發淡淡的柑橘、白色水果、 杏和少量白色清新花香氣息，剛好與粽子的鹹味形成互補，同時緩解油膩感，讓您的味蕾盡情享受當中的滋味。
