Recommended wine: Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Riesling
Thai 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. The Quintan Essentia Chenin Blanc with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 35 dollars per bottle.
Quinta Essentia Chenin BlancA deep yellow color suggests full ripeness and complexity. Aromas of baked pear, ripe apple, hints of fresh citrus and roasted nuts are present on a complex and layered nose. The palate is richly textured revealing pineapple, tropical fruits and golden delicious apple. The finish is long complemented by a firm acidity that gives the wine length and focus.Pair this wine alongside grilled fish and seafood in general.
