Description

Mapo Tofu Sauce has 2 layers of flavor: spicy and savoury. The signature ingredients are Szechuan peppercorn, dried red chili pepper and leek onion.

The wine style to go for is either a slightly sweet white or a soft red.

The best pairing is a Riesling with some residual sugar to calm the fire in your mouth.

Bubbles are always a great choice, especially if you choose a sweeter version: Extra Sec, Sec, Demi Sec.

Go Local

Make it a habit to eat and drink local. Expand your skills to understand the passion that wine communicates. Explore the range of possibilities a grape can express through culture, terroir, and climate.
