Chinese Food and Wine Pairings
Like all food types Chinese food is broad and varied in flavour: hot and spicy; sweet, mild, and just plain flavoursome.
Sweet & Sour Pork
Now I have googled a few recipes but I am a lazy cook so I have decided to put a link to Kylie Kwong's recipe for her Sweet & Sour Pork. I would regard Sweet & Sour Pork as a sweet dish so, as we don't have a Reisling in our cellar door, we would suggest you partake in our Chardonnay or Verdelho.
If you are a red-wine drinker then perhaps something light and semi-sweet such as our Sparkling Rosato made from our Sangiovese grapes. This wine is lightly sparkling, pink in colour and semi-sweet in flavour. It has a lovely creamy finish, perfect as a drink-now wine.
Set your table with some water and steamed rice to cleanse the palate between dishes.
This brings me to the hot-and-spicy food. Try our Pinot Grigio with this type of food or step outside the rules, drink what you like, and taste an Adina Vineyard big red with this such as the Thomas Charles Shiraz. Yum.
