Here's some wines you ought to try alongside.
The team at Novel Wines have helped us choose the best wines to drink with Thai food when you're at home or visiting friends. Thai food can be spicy, so we've started with some spice tamer styles you'll love.
Thai Green Curry loves particularly fruity, zippy green wines like the a'Beckett's Lynchets from Devizes. This English wine is 100% Pinot Auxxerois, a variety bursting with green apple, pear and lime flavours. If your curry gets extra spicy though then Riesling is a better choice with its rich character. Bibo Runge Hargardan Riesling is a step up from the winery's basic level white and tastes extraordinarily good with Thai food. Not a fan of spice? Then go light on chillis in the Thai and try it with the floral, juicy Moschofilero grape from Greece. A great example is Semeli Mantinia Nassiakos.
If you really fancy impressing then why not drink Thai with Thai? A soft, off-dry red style is made from the Thai variety called 'Pokdum' and it comes from Thailand's best vineyard: Monsoon Valley. The Pokdum Shiraz blend red wine is great with soy duck dishes. The winery also has a late harvest Chenin Blanc sweet wine that might not pair with Thai savoury food but is mind-blowingly delicious with blue cheese!
