Vouvray Demi-Sec Stelvin Closure 2018
Why we love it
In Cantonese cuisine, the most popular cooking preparation methods are steaming, stir-frying and roasting to bring out the best of ingredients. I was wondering how might we create a complementary pairing to enrich our dining pleasure, at home or in a restaurant. I stumbled upon Chateau Moncontour from Vouvray - it is one of the oldest Chateau in Loire Valley.
It is harvested from a single plot, named "La Monaco", slowly pressed to extract the best of flavours of Chenin Blanc grape.
This wine has an overture of white flowers, fruity, smooth texture, balanced acidity and slightly sweet but it will not overpower the delicacy of Cantonese dishes. Perfect for drinking on its own, together with chicken, steam seafood dishes, light meals or anything with hints of spices.
