Wine match: Mr Riggs Three Corner Jack Shiraz Cabernet Merlot 2019. This bold, richly flavoured red works brilliantly with the flavour-packed sweetly spicy lamb chops.
Wine match: Waipara Hills Waipara Valley Pinot Gris 2021. Delicious oriental fried rice along with crisp crunchy lettuce partners so well with the smooth mouthfeel and bright acidity of the wine.
Wine match: Misty Cove Landmark Chardonnay 2020. The toasty, velvety nature of this Chardonnay is perfect with slightly charred chicken and the creamy but crunchy salsa.
Wine match: La Mascota Malbec 2019. The wine’s rich fruit and spicy savoury characters are seamless with the lamb’s gamey flavours and cooling tzatziki.
Wine match: Toi Toi Central Otago Clutha Pinot Noir 2020. The spicy overtone of the moist chicken contrasts splendidly with the Pinot’s fruity flavours and velvety mouthfeel.
