Recipe Thursday: Chenin Blanc and Thai Red Curry

From the golden-hued curry of India to the green and red variety of Thailand, curry is a brilliant, exotic fusion of spices. With its multi-dimensional flavor profile and varying levels of spiciness, many oenophiles ponder, “What wine shall I pair with curry?”

Take this delicious Spicy Red Curry Chicken recipe from Robert Irvine at Food Network. Aromatic red curry paste is simmered in coconut milk with chicken and umami-rich vegetables, yielding a warm and comforting weeknight dinner. Though complex in flavor, pairing wine with curry doesn’t have to be a complex endeavor. Try a dry Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley, such as Pascal Laffourcade’s Savennières. Medium-bodied with herbal, spice and mineral notes, this beautiful white makes a harmonious companion to the vibrant red curry.
