Dumplings are a traditional element in a Chinese New Year’s feast, not to mention a staple on most restaurant menus. The combination of garlic, ginger and soy that one typically encounters in dumplings can make them tricky to pair with wine. This is a great spot for an off-dry sparkling wine. A sparkling Gewürztraminer (there are some out there) or a Cremant d’Alsace that may include some spice in the blend would be ideal, but even an excellent Moscato d’Asti or Prosecco can be a fun match for unpretentious dumplings.
