Recommended wine: Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Chenin Blanc
Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Chenin Blanc are my top picks for Asian. 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. You could try J. Lohr Estates Bay Mist White Riesling. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 10 dollars per bottle.
J. Lohr Estates Bay Mist White RieslingPale straw in color, our Bay Mist White Riesling has enticing floral aromas with green apricots and pippin apple fruit. The aromas are expanded on the palate, adding orange blossom and lychee. With 2.56% residual sugar balanced by the naturally crisp acidity and spritz from a long cool fermentation, the White Riesling is a refreshing wine capable of complementing the vibrant flavors of Pacific Rim cuisine or standing on its own as an aperitif.
