This fried seafood pancake works a treat with sparkling wine or prosecco, as the citrus notes and light, fine bubbles cut through the fat and complement the seafood.
Hailing from the South Australia, this new-release sparkling wine from Nepenthe is fresh and lively, with delicate citrus flavours and a clean finish.
The sweet and spicy marinade on these tasty chicken skewers cries out for a white wine with a hint of residual sugar. Off-dry Riesling (Riesling with a hint of sweetness) is a great option for Asian dishes with chilli heat.
Flavours of citrus and lime are balanced by fruit sweetness, the perfect foil for this spicy chicken dish.
It takes a brave wine to stand up to Korean chilli pork – and no one would blame you for reaching for an ice-cold beer. But if you do want a vino, then it has to have sugar and aromatics on its side.
The off-dry riesling above could fit the bill, but if you’d like to be more adventurous, opt for a gewürztraminer.
Perfumed with florals, lychee and Turkish delight, gewürztraminer smells so good you may wish you could spritz it on yourself! But, resist the urge and instead let it weave its magic on this hotter-than-hot pork dish.
These Korean dumplings are flavoursome little morsels, packed with pork, ginger, green onion, and sesame. Choose a juicy wine with a hint of fruit sweetness, such as a Grenache-based rosé or chilled gamay.
Bright with raspberries and strawberries on the nose, this McLaren Vale rosé starts sweet on the palate, but is crisp and refreshing on the palate.
Grilled, charry meats scream out for a fruit-forward red wine with balanced tannins and light oak treatment. Look to Barossa Valley grenache or Spanish-style tempranillo for your next Korean beef barbecue.
Sourced from 98-year-old vines in the Barossa Valley, this Mediterranean-style red has a rich body of dark fruit and spice. Chill it slightly during summer months.
