Hey, Mint Fanatics! Do you miss fine dining at Asian Mint? While we miss having y’all around and treating you to our hybrid of Asian and Southern hospitality, your health and safety remain our top priority amid the Covid-19 pandemic. But we do have an idea that can help elevate your dinners at home into a true fine-dining experience. We invite you to try pairing your ChefMint kit with wine. Here are our suggested Asian Mint wine pairings.
Domaine Pinot Gris
Domaine Pinot Gris comes from the vineyards of Oregon-based King Estate. A product of Willamette Valley, Oregon’s wine country, this wine is made using organic and sustainably farmed biodynamic grapes. The Domaine Pinot Gris has a bright, almost golden color, as well as the tones and aromas of citrus and honey.
We recommend pairing this wine with our pad woon sen, yellow curry, chicken teriyaki, and chicken satay.
Peter Yealands Sauvignon Blanc
Peter Yealands Sauvignon Blanc comes all the way from Awatere Valley in New Zealand. This sauvignon blanc has a vibrant aroma of blackcurrant and fresh herbs, tangy notes of lemon and lime, and the feel of passionfruit and guava. Moreover, it’s registered as a wine for vegans.
This wine is perfect with fish and seafood, and we love pairing it with our steamed seabass and Asian noodle salad. It also works well with our kua kai and traditional Thai chicken wrap.
Portillo Malbec is a rich, ruby-red wine with a fruity aroma that will remind you of plums and blackberries. It possesses fresh black cherry and redcurrant flavors, as well as clove and cinnamon notes. This wine comes from Uco Valley in Mendoza, Argentina, the product of state-of-the-art methods designed to maintain the integrity and purity of the grapes.
Our suggested Asian Mint wine pairings are our Mongolian beef, steak teriyaki, and green basil fried rice.
The Wente Sandstone Merlot is American-made, a creation of the family-owned Wente Vineyards in Livermore Valley, California. The grapes for this wine are grown using sustainable methods designed to conserve water. The wine itself is full of berry flavors, including acai, cherry, and cranberry, as well as fig and pomegranate notes.
We recommend this wine with our pad Thai, Asian vegetable stir-fry, and our pineapple cashew rice.
