Recommended wine: Gruener Veltliner, Riesling, Sparkling Rose
Gruener Veltliner, Riesling, and Sparkling rosé are my top picks for Indian. The best wine for Indian food will depending on the dish, of course, but these picks can be served chilled and have some sweetness to complement the spiciness and complex flavors of a wide variety of traditional dishes. The Cadre Band of Stones Gruner Veltliner with a 4.1 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 22 dollars per bottle.
Cadre Band of Stones Gruner VeltlinerAromatically, this wine leads with a salty citrus edge with earth tones that have exotic hints of North African spices. From there is a depth of jasmine and beautiful citrus driven tropical fruit, reminiscent of squeezing a lime wedge over the fruit of a half-cut Papaya. You can’t hide the ever so present ripe grapefruit component that we often refer to as Squirt…the infamous grapefruit soda. This is a super interesting wine. It has a harmonious balance of ripeness but a ton of verve and energy on the palate. A base of salty citrus, ginger and white pepper mingle with grapefruit that all lead to a savory zesty finish drenched in minerality. This wine touches both sides of the Grüner spectrum, bright, fresh and vibrant along with texture and a fullness that showcases what makes Edna Valley white wines unique.
