The sparkling wines, in general, are the ones that better will accompany this type of cuisine. They contrast the taste of soybeans, empanadillas and rice, of course, in all its aspects. With rice we can also incorporate semi-dry red wines and merlot varieties.
White wines also go well and refresh the palate along with fried dishes, sauces, noodles or seaweed. And also with the fish dished, as well as with the vegetables, which usually represent this cuisine.
Among the varieties in white wines to combine with Chinese cuisine, we find Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, as well as other native white Spanish varieties, which are often similar to the mentioned grapes.
When it comes to pairing with meats, such as the lacquered duck, the chicken or the veal, which are rich spices, a good choice is a young red wine. In this case, the best known wines of Rioja and Ribera del Duero will triumph. Lacquered ducks can be enjoyed with grapes such as Monastrell or Bobal, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah, among many others.
When the chinese dishes that are somewhat spicy and multi flavored, the varieties Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon blanc are recommended. In addition we will mention that tasting Chinese wines is another way of getting into the oriental culture, not all chinese restaurants have a grand variety of chinese wine, but some do. And in online wine stores and supermarkets are an option to broaden your horizon on oriental wine. Some oriental customs suggest to drink warm wine, of very low alcoholic level. This in fact, multiplies its organoleptic qualities.
