Aussie Riesling a Partial Success with a Thai Meal

We had a Thai meal comprising Chicken Tom Ka (a coconut chicken soup) and Pad Thai, the famous prawn noodle stir fry.  We drank a bottle of the usually reliable McWilliams Hanwood Riesling 2007 from Makro.  The slightly off-dry and minerally creaminess was an excellent match with the soup, but the pairing with the Pad Thai was less successful.  There were a lot of competing flavours from the sauce, beansprouts, peanuts and coriander leaves.
