1. Graham’s 20 Year Old Tawny Port, Portugal + Chinese Dougnut

This famous port wine from the Portugal, with its golden color surfacing from the brandy-like bottle, brings you surprisingly rich and sweet flavours. This well-aged Tawny gives you a different brand of hunger when served with these very traditional Chinese snacks covered with deep fried dough and sugar. The smooth liquid cleanses the mouth with deeply unexpectedly pleasure.

2. Dow’s 20 Year Old Tawny Port, Portugal + Chocolate swiss roll

Another port wine from Portugal. This serves with a balance between alcohol and sweetness. Dow’s notably drier texture and its 20 years of cask aging brings out a mix of complexity and vibrancy. With the creamy and soft chocolate swiss roll, they are a match made in heaven.

3. Seven’s Select Shiraz, 2013, Australia + curry fishballs

Image title

Being the most popular grape variety in Australia, the thick-skinned and dark berries add intensity to colour and a richness of texture. Fishballs with curry sauce are the ideal combo with this strong flavoured wine. You will find the spiciness of the curry sauce blends in with the rather high alcoholic liquid.
