Recommended wine: Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Riesling
Asian works really well with Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling. 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 Raats Original Chenin Blanc. It has 4.5 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 14 dollars.
Raats Original Chenin BlancOriginal Chenin is crafted without the use of any oak in order to preserve the wine's "original", vibrant fesh fruit character. It's packed with succulent flavours of pineapple, golden delicious apple and citrus, with hints of ginger, honeysuckle and orange blossom and a lovely minerality. This bright, tasty offering from Chenin master Bruwer Raats rivals the finest Loire Valley Chenin."Really clean-cut, with white peach, honeysuckle and mineral notes that drive through the lengthy, well-defined finish. There's also great crunchy acidity buried here."Wine Spectator89 Points
