I'm going to make a Shitaki mushroom wine and I'm thinking that pairing it with another flavor might help. The flavor that comes to mind is sesame but I can not find any recipe that is close and sesame is heavy in oil so I don't believe that would work too well.

I can only find references about sesame wine in an Assyrian creation myth. Any idea if it's possible? Could I make a sesame tea and then ferment that? Any other ideas what might pair well with Shitaki in wine? The other thing I can think of is Red yeast rice wine which would be hard to find localy.

I'm hoping for a drinking wine but if I get a cooking wine I would be happy too.
Any ideas?
