How to pair wines with Chinese New Year snacks and dishes

Take your Chinese New Year snacking and feasting to the next level with these wine pairing suggestions.

 

  • Bak kwa

    This Chinese New Year favourite benefits greatly from a good pairing that its grease, and yet still exhibits all the meaty, smoky qualities of the snack. The Viu Manent Estate Collection Carmenere 2015 features red and dark fruits on the nose, with herbaceous, peppercorn-like flavours and a smoky edge that perfectly complements bak kwa. Silky, well-balanced tannins cut through the protein and the fat for a fresh finish.
