Our recommended Wine Pairing for this Recipe
Carignan, Grenache , Mourvedre, Syrah
This wine has a lovely fresh fruity aroma loaded with bramble notes as well as leather and spice. It has quite a deep and intriguing nose.
The freshness follows onto the palate with a soft supple body resulting from the nine months lees aging it has. The bramble fruit spring onto the palate with great expression.
This wine will pair beautifully with this dish with the bramble fruit working with the sweetness of the hoisin sauce and the elegant structure of the body supporting the pork. It is a big wine but with decanting it will not over power this delicious dish.
