Recommended wine: Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Riesling
Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling 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. The Leo Steen Saini Vineyard Chenin Blanc with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 24 dollars per bottle.
Leo Steen Saini Vineyard Chenin BlancLike being transported to a spring meadow, this lovely wine displays enticing aromas of chamomile, lemon verbena, thyme and zesty citrus. On the long, refreshing palate, excellent natural acidity and wet gravel minerality bring beautiful energy to the wine, carrying flavors of green apple and Anjou pear to a bright, focused finish.
