Recommended wine: Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Chenin Blanc
Asian can be paired with Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Chenin Blanc. The best wine for Asian food depends on the cuisine and dish - of course - but these acidic whites pair with a number of traditional meals, spicy or not. The Dr. Loosen Dr. L Riesling with a 4.6 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 11 dollars per bottle.
Dr. Loosen Dr. L Riesling"...a surprisingly complex and outstanding value in nearly-dry Riesling... Lemon, green apple, wet stone, and lightly floral aromas are followed by a crisp, slate-saturated palate and a finish of juicy citrus and apple, nut oils, mineral salts, and wet stone..."-Wine Advocate"This wine has to be one of the best deals in Mosel Riesling. Ernst Loosen's 'introductory' Riesling is marked by flavors of fresh peach and apricot, balanced by a fair amount of refreshing acidity. A great aperitif."- Food & Wine Magazine
