An Aussie Riesling Enhances a Thai Curry

We ate later and again had convenience food.   This time Chicken with more of the Thai Penang curry paste from the oriental supermarket, accompanied by noodles and beansprouts.  Very tasty, but what to drink with the meal?  We tried a Casa Porta Chilean Carménère 2009 from Costco.  Carménères often go well with Indian curries, so we thought we’d try it with a Thai curry.  Definitely not!   The wine was put aside in favour of a McWilliams Hanwood Australian Riesling 2007 from Makro.  An off dry white that was a much better combination that actually enhanced the fruitiness of the wine.  Interestingly the label on the back of the bottle says it goes well with Asian food.  My experience is that it is better with Thai than Indian or Chinese.
