HAPPY MID-AUTUMN OFFER
The time is almost upon us when we get together with families and friends, gazing up at the beautiful full moon and feasting with delicious mooncakes. The Mid-Autumn Festival is a time when we give thanks for crop and fruit harvests, and while traditionally we will drink a cup of ‘cha’ to pair with the mooncake delicacies, wine pairing has become popular too.
From Champagne to off-dry German Riesling or Sauternes, to classic Bordeaux there are many combinations possible to please everyone’s palate. Here are some mooncake & wine pairing suggestions with C&B wines.
*Free delivery on all orders of just SG$250 or more. Order by 2pm Monday to Friday for next day delivery.
mooncake pairing suggestions
Lotus Seed Paste
Probably the most popular traditional pairing with sweet and rich texture. Sauternes is a classic wine pairing with its creamy honeyed waxy flavour, and soft texture supported by its balanced acidity. Another great suggestion is an off dry Riesling with fruitful character and mouth-watering minerality which can cut through the rich sensation of the mooncake, while bringing out the nutty and floral aromas of the lotus seeds.

Lotus Seed Paste with Salted Egg Yolk
An all-time favourite which stood the age of time for good reasons. The savouriness of the salted egg yolk compliments the sweet creamy lotus paste creating a rich, luscious mouth feel. With the mooncake’s rich texture, a glass of bubbles will freshen your palate. The sparkling wine from Corney & Barrow is pocket friendly and refreshing. The Ambriel (English sparkling) is an excellent alternative to Champagne nowadays.

Five Kernels and Chinese Cured Ham
This particular mooncake’s filling is made with five kinds of nuts, with Chinese cured ham as a core. This savoury mooncake goes extremely well with a merlot-based blend from Bordeaux. The Oregon Pinot Noir is also fantastic, with vibrant acidity and bursting with dark fruits and dried herbs. Expect a flavour bomb on the palate!
