French White Blend Great with Kapitan Curry

We cooked Kapitan Curry, a Malaysian dish from Rick Stein, that we have enjoyed before.  The dish is chicken-based, but we intend to try it next week with prawns for some non-meat eating friends.  Last time we had Kapitan Curry we found McWilliams Hanwood Riesling 2007, an off-dry white, worked very well with the sauce that contains coconut milk.  However, we didn’t have any bottles of McWilliams this time, so Teresa scoured the shelves of Tesco looking for something suitable.  She found La Tour de Marrenon, Cotes du Luberon 2010 that the label suggests goes with Green Chicken and Coconut Soup.  The wine is a combination of  “ripe peachy Grenache Blanc and floral, aromatic and spicy Vermentino.”  It was fresh and citrussy, but at the same time there was a richness.  We both agreed it went very well with the curry.
