Sushi is a trendy food found in many restaurants in different countries. Because it offers a variety of flavors, and is a perfect nutrition. When drinking wine with sushi, consider which is the best combination. Here are tips to figure it it.
Depending on the type of sushi you eat, although it’s often preferably raw fish, we’ll use both types of wine. As it consists mostly of fish, white wine is the best. It brings the necessary freshness for sushi and intense fruit aromas, which combined with rice, soy and raw fish, intensify the flavor of the whole mixture.
As well as white wines, rosé are also chosen to pair with sushi. They also give freshness in all seasons of the year we drink them.
Red wines can also go well with raw fish. In any case they must be young, light, with a low concentration of tannins. The result are fresh wines that pair well with the main ingredients of sushi.
Among the main varieties of these wines that you can drink with sushi, we include Tempranillo, Verdejo or Albariño. With rosé wines, Monastrell, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, in general. Among the reds, Syrah variety is one of the chosen.
Wine types and brands
The wines that go well to make a sushi tasting are varied: we have seen white, rosé and red wines, and also highlight sparkling wines and cavas. There are a variety of brands and types of wines for this use. Argentinian Malbec, Pinot Noir from Burgundy, the Spanish wines of Rueda, some rosé wines from Jumilla or certain red wines from Penedès.
