A New Zealand Sauvignon is Good with a Thai Chicken Soup

We finished off the Tom Kha Gai (Thai Chicken Soup) from Wednesday and were pleased that it had developed more intense Thai spice flavours. We served it with Oriental egg noodles this time.

We decided to match this with a more strongly flavoured wine and opened a bottle of Brancott Estate Marlborough New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc 2010 from Costco.  This is citrussy, with peaches, melons and apricots with a creamy, fruity tang.  We have found New Zealand Sauvignons a reliably good match with Thai food where sweetness is not prominent.
