Fried Rice is often sweet and sour and you should match the sauce and spices. Off dry wines will help you fight the heat of hot chilli.

If you prefer a red wine, go for a young and fruity, slightly chilled one.

Soy Sauce: go for umami red wines such Carignan and its blends, Merlot, Southern Rhône, Cannonau, Aglianico and Gaglioppo.

Sichuan Spice: bold, off dry Rosé.

Chinese Five Spice: plummy Pinot Noir.

Hot chilli: off dry whites or go for round tannins in bold reds such Australian Shiraz, Amarone and New World Cabernet.

Go Local

Make it a habit to eat and drink local. Expand your skills to understand the passion that wine communicates. Explore the range of possibilities a grape can express through culture, terroir, and climate.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
