Wines + Mooncake Pairing
Champagne + Traditional Lotus Paste Moon Cake with Salty Egg
The brioche and toasty, nutty flavors match very well with the baked wrap of the moon cake. The acidic bubbly cuts through the richness of the salty egg yolk that helps to cleanse the palate where the floral and fruity apple notes bring out the fragrance of lotus paste.
Pinot Noir + Traditional Lotus/ Bean Paste Moon Cake
The fruity and fragrance strawberry and red cherry with medium tannin and acidity of Pinot Noir helps to cut through the fattiness of Moon cake and bring out the elegance of Lotus paste.
Gewürztraminer & Processco + Snowskin Moon Cake
Gewürztraminer has pronounced aromatics of lychee, orange, honey and chamomile with refreshing acidity that balances the creamy texture. Same as a floral processco with the right acidity that brings out the fragrance of snowskin mooncakes.
Sauternes + Mixed Nuts Moon Cake
The Botrytis Sauternes gives off an enticing aroma of ripe, tropical notes such as passionfruit, mango, apricot, peach, cinnamon or nutmeg, complementing the nutty flavour of the mixed nuts mooncake.
