Shao Hsing Hua Diao Wine (紹興花雕酒)

“Shao Hsing Hua Diao Wine, a condiment you’ll like adding to enhance the aroma and taste of your home cooking”

Shao Hsing Hua Diao Jiu (紹興花雕酒) – a type of rice wine originated from Shao Xing, China. It is mainly made of glutinous rice and wheat. Alcohol content by volume: 16% or less. Its name, Hua Diao describes the flowery carved pottery that stored the wine anciently, but the bottle has been mass produced commercially with simpler design in handy bottle, for convenience and more economical purposes.

There are different grades of such wine, for different purposes of drinking and cooking. It resembles the taste of dry sherry.

To my knowledge, those available in most supermarkets and sundry shops, ranged from $2 for a big bottle (lower grade) to $15 for only a small bottle (better grade). More
