A Kiwi Sauvignon Reliably Good with an Indian Take Away

We had an Indian take away from Asha in Nailsea comprising Bengal Chicken and Lamb Tikka Balti with rice and naan. The Bengal Chicken was chicken pieces cooked in a slightly hot sauce with spring onions, bombay chillies, tomatoes & fresh herbs  The Balti was cooked with Kashmiri spices, onions, tomatoes, peppers & fresh coriander.  We both enjoyed the food.

We opened a bottle of Brancott Estate Marlborough New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc 2010 from Costco.  It had a citrus nose and was fresh-tasting with gooseberries, grapefruit and tropical fruits.  It was a very good match with both dishes.  We love Sauvignons with curries.
