Merdeka 2022: Find Out The Best Wine To Pair With Your Favourite Malaysian Food

We’ve listed Vyne-approved wines to pair with your favourite Malaysian food. 

Kick off Merdeka with tantalising your taste buds with Malaysian food and good wine to pair with it. 

Char Kuey Teow & Barale Fratelli Nebbiolo

Call us biased, but Malaysia boasts the best street food in the world thanks to multiculturalism. And, this evergreen and hearty dish sees flat rice noodles combined with peanut oil, prawns, cockles, bean sprout, chilli paste, and soy sauce, all brought together by fried egg. Straight from the wok, Char Kuey Teow pairs perfectly with Barale Fratelli Nebbiolo - a full bodied wine with red fruit notes and floral hints of rose, violet and wisteria.

Nasi Lemak & Pete’s Pure Moscato

Nasi Lemak is a national treasure to us. Coconut rice topped with hard-boiled egg, anchovy sambal, and roasted peanuts is a classic dish for all Malaysians. Its savoury hues pair wonderfully with Pete’s Pure Moscato. The light and sweet wine have peach and citrusy notes that are perfect to consume for breakfast alongside your nasi lemak. With the right amount of fizz, this wine adds depth to your dish.

Beef Rendang & Y Series Yalumba Cabernet Sauvignon

Spicy, rich and creamy, beef rendang has an explosion of flavours that’ll keep you coming back for more. We recommend pairing this delicacy with Y Series Yalumba Cabernet Sauvignon for an extra pack of punch. Infused with aromas of juicy, red plums and violets, the wine is balanced by savoury Mediterranean herbs that doesn’t collide with beef rendang but instead, uplifts the flavours.

Chicken Ramlee Burger & Domaine Majas Rosé 

Nothing beats a classic chicken Ramly burger made by the roadside. We like pairing this street food with Domaine Majas Rose which has a 50/50 blend of Merlot and Syrah; a juicy and tart red berry blend of flavours. The soft citrus finish and strawberries infused within the wine make it a stellar pairing with the burger.

Satay & Cavit Riesling

Marinated, skewered, and grilled, Satays are the greatest grab-and-go dish. Packed with a ton of herbs and spices, satays are always beautifully aromatic and flavourful. The Cavit Riesling goes together with this Malaysian dish excellently. With aromas of apricot, peach, and pear, the sweet to savoury blend will make your dining experience a whole lot better.
