Roasted suckling pig and roast duck
For something like Cantonese roast you'd want a bold, rich red to cut through the fat of the meat. Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz is a blend of 77% shiraz and 23% cabernet sauvignon, and features defined tannins with a palate of blackberries and mulberries, with a hint of black olives and nori – all of which helps to open up the juicy flavours of the meat.
Crisp, fragrant love letters go great with the Penfolds Club Tawny Mataro Shiraz Grenache, which is made from a blend that include mouvedre, shiraz, and grenache. You'll find raisin, liquorice, and roasted walnuts on the nose, and fruitcake and vanilla on the palate. Served this chilled, and you'll find the toffee in the tipple really showing with the coconut in the love letters.
