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. One wine you could try is Beaumont Hope Marguerite Chenin Blanc. It has 5 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 35 dollars.
