Marlborough Sauvignon a Good Match with Thai Green Curry

We had the rest of the Thai Green Chicken Curry from the previous evening, augmented with some more coconut milk and spices.  We like a lot of sauce.  We decided to pair it with a New Zealand Sauvignon this time.  A bottle of Montana Marlborough Reserve 2010 from Costco.  Warning!  I think we served this too cold, because we both thought the flavours were a bit muted at first.  As the wine warmed a bit the ripe tropical fruit flavours came to the fore, but it still retained a crisp, clear finish.  We thought it was a very good match with the curry, but not quite as good as the Sauvignon/Semillon we had yesterday.
