F&W Pairing - Thai Green Curry Chicken 泰式青咖喱雞


Craving for spicy food in summer? How about Thai Green Curry?


This pungent, aromatic and appetizing dish loaded with Thai herbs and spices, such as galangal, lemongrass, kaffir lime zest, and green chilies which give a fiery kick.

A fruit-driven white wine with low tannin, low alcohol, minimal oak and best chilled would be my recommendation to pair with spicy Asian dishes.


Off-dry Riesling is great with coconut milk based curries, that slightly sweet element helps lower the heat.

The aromatic Gewürztraminer is many people's favourite with Thai and other Asian cuisines, the exotic fruit flavours like lychee/ rock melon/ pineapple match brilliantly with oriental cuisines.

If you are not a fan of lightly sweet wines, Sparkling and Pinot Gris are the alternative. 

Sparkling has a fresh and palate cleansing acidity, the fizz is great with all kinds of Thai dishes.

Pinot Gris has tropical fruit flavours and spice note of ginger, perfect for Asian cuisines.

夏天想食辣? 試試泰式青咖哩?

這道香辣開胃的菜式使用大量泰國香草和香料,

例如南薑,泰國青檸皮,香茅和辛辣刺激的青辣椒等。


為辛辣的亞洲菜式配酒,我會選擇一支果味較重,低單寧,低酒精的白酒。

冰凍及沒有經過橡木釀造的更好!

微甜的 Off-dry Riesling (半干雷司令) 就跟用椰奶煮的咖哩很搭,更能減輕其辣度。

另芳香的 Gewürztraminer (格烏茲塔明那) 是很多人喜愛用以配搭泰菜和其他亞洲菜的白酒,其帶有異國水果  (荔枝/ 蜜瓜/ 菠蘿) 的香味特性與亞洲菜非常搭配。

如果您不喜歡帶甜的葡萄酒,可以選擇 Sparkling wine (氣泡酒) 和 Pinot Gris (灰皮諾)。

Sparkling wine 有清爽的酸度,氣泡令口味更清新,適合各種類型的泰國菜。 

而 Pinot Gris 帶熱帶水果香味和薑這等亞洲香料味,非常適合配搭亞洲菜。
