Match #1: A Soft, Aromatic, Off-Dry White
A soft white with a touch of sweetness rounds out the edges of the pungent sauce.
ZEROING IN: Easy on the alcohol and long on stone-fruit flavors, Washington state rieslings match perfectly with big, fiery foods from Southern and Southeast Asia. Although this recipe is not blazing hot, a touch of sweetness helps temper the curry and ground red pepper.
