$238.00 excl. GST

Three wines designed to match a selection of iconic Lunar New Year dishes. The perfect way to start this Lunar New Year. 

  • Pierre Péters Cuvée de Réserve Blanc de Blancs | 100% Chardonnay
  • Hervé Souhaut Saint-Joseph Blanc ‘L’Etrati’ | Roussanne 
  • Mas Saint Louis Châteauneuf-du-Pape | Grenache

Pierre Péters Cuvée de Réserve Blanc de Blancs

What — Blanc de Blancs (100% Chardonnay)
Where — Champagne, France
When — NV

Deeply mineral driven with smoky notes underpinning the flavours of steeped plum and apricot fruit, dried herb and Meyer lemon peel.

+ Read More

Amongst the finest Chardonnay producers of Champagne is the domaine of Pierre Péters. Founded in the early 20th century, the estate is now helmed by Rodolphe Péters, whose fastidious nature has catapulted the wines to be among the most desired wines in all of the Côte des Blancs. The Cuvée de Réserve Blanc de Blancs is a blend of vintages, incorporating the family’s legendary reserve wines which date back to 1988. Pierre Péters’ style is always one of freshness layered with complexity and a distinctive chalky minerality. 

The pairing of Yusheng with Cuvée de Réserve Blanc de Blancs is twofold – firstly, both the dish and champagne are synonymous with celebration and the gathering of loved ones. Secondly, the distinctive mineral character of Péters’ Cuvée de Réserve Blanc de Blancs and refreshing acidity helps to cut through the richness of added sauces and complement the seafood and radish components. Just as Yusheng is a celebration of abundance, an abundance of champagne seems the appropriate companion for the dish.

Hervé Souhaut Saint-Joseph Blanc L'Etrati

What — Roussanne
Where — Rhône Valley, France
When — 2018

Tropical and exotic fruits with wet algae-laced stones, ripe pear, dried tree fruits and quixotic minerality. A sense of gras without heaviness or fat, as is commonly seen in the regio

For over 25 years, Hervé Souhaut has been producing wines under his eponymous label. Based in the Rhône, he works across a number of appellations producing both whites and reds. His Saint-Joseph ‘L’Etrati’ is 100% Roussanne – a white grape from a place most famously known for its red wines. It comes specifically from a plot of old vines from which this is only the second vintage produced. White wines of the Rhône can often be quite round and somewhat soft and lacking in acidity, whereas the perfecting nature of Souhaut’s hand provides a well-balanced approach of both fruit intensity and acidity.

The dish of steamed whole fish, for which Soon Hock is used in most instances, is one of many flavours, each adding its unique aspect to the balanced whole. The ripe-fruited nature and viscosity of L’Etrati complements the tender texture of the fish and draws out the ginger components for an enlightening experience. Truly a rare treat of a wine fitting a celebration of the Lunar New Year.

Mas Saint Louis Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tradition

What — Grenache blend
Where — Châteauneuf-du-Pape, France
When — 2015

Forward, medium-bodied, sweet and tart red fruits with a definite herbal leaning. A distinctive garrigue and olive note rides on top of the red berry fruits. 

+ Read More

The creation of Mas Saint Louis dates back to the late 1800’s. It was then purchased by Jean-Louis Geniest in 1909 and the Geniest family still own it to this day. Mas Saint Louis is one of the few Châteauneuf-du-Pape vineyards planted in a single block of vines. This is almost unique as most vineyards in the appellation are spread out in different lieux-dits all over the region. Mas Saint Louis Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tradition is produced from 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 5% Syrah and 5% Cinsault. The terroir comprises rocks, stones and sand in the la Crousroute lieu-dit. The wine is vinified in old cement tanks and aged in a combination of foudres and tanks for 12 months before bottling.

The Grenache-dominant blend of Mas Saint Louis pairs stunningly across a variety of roasted meats and the char of ‘wok hei’. It is delicate yet not without flavour style, providing freshness and the necessary tannins to help cut through the meat, while the flavours of caramelisation match well with both the sweet and tart fruit flavours of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tradition. Without a richness of oak, the wine retains a fruit purity, making second helpings an easier task in a meal of indulgence.
