Aussie Riesling Works Better Than Chilean Gewürztraminer with Kapitan Curry

We had a bottle of Aresti Gewürztraminer 2006, a Chilean White from the Sunday Times Wine Club that we had been looking forward to drinking.  I did a lot of research on food and wine matching websites and there is some conflict on good food matches for Gewürztraminer.  In the end we went for Kapitan Curry, a Malaysian dish from Rick Stein.  This was a lovely meal but its sweetness clashed with the wine.   We turned instead to McWilliams Hanwood Riesling 2007 from Makro.  This off-dry Australian white is a trusty favourite of ours with many Asian dishes.  A much better match for this particular curry.
