An Aussie Riesling Combines Well with a Vietnamese Fish Dish

We enjoyed Crisp Fried Sea Bass with a Tomato, Chilli and Kaffir Lime Leaf Sauce, which we served with Noodles.  This is a Vietnamese dish from Rick Stein.  We tasted a Citadella Romanian Pinot Grigio 2009 from Sunday Times Wine Club, but were not overly impressed with the combination and set this aside in favour of a McWilliams Hanwood Riesling 2007 from Makro.  We have found this off-dry Australian white a reliable match with Asian cuisine and it did not let us down.  The right food always seems to bring out a fresh minerally creaminess in the wine.
