Hainanese Chicken Rice. A great pairing to this umami ladened dish would be a fruit-focused Sauvignon Blanc for all Singaporean food lovers.
About the wine
Aromatic Sauvignon Blanc with guava, passionfruit & bready lees. Intensely flavoured, with integrated acidity & fruity sweetness. ⠀
Born out of frugality, Hainanese chicken rice – one of Singapore’s national dishes may seem monochromatic but is by no means bland. A testament to that would be getting featured in CNN's article- 50 Best Food in The World. That feat is undeniable when one takes a bite from a spoonful of the tender chicken thigh with fragrant garlicky rice, ginger, dark sauce and chilli. The Sauvignon Blanc’s fruitiness works well with the lightly poached chicken and its crisp acidity balances out the greasiness of the rice while also providing relief from the fiery chilli sauce.
