A Chilean Riesling Very Good with Thai Soup

We opened a jar of Tom Yum Gung spice paste from the Asian supermarket, added chicken and some other Thai ingredients and enjoyed the famous Thai soup.  In the absence of any overtly sweet ingredients in the dish, we thought a dry white would be OK.  The description of the Cono Sur Chilean Riesling 2010 from Tesco suggested this wine would be dry.  In the event, it proved to be slightly off-dry, but it didn’t matter.  It was a very good match.  The lemon flavours had an affinity with the lemongrass in the soup.  There was also a refreshing spicy tang and a minerally creaminess.
