What wine do you pair with Indian food? Honestly Sue couldn’t have picked a better one. Willm Pinot Blanc Vin d’Alsace 2009 This wine is has very little acidity to it. It’s soft and very easy to drink with or without food. It’s got a summer fruit sweetness of peach or apricot but it’s still a dry, well balanced wine. I think because it’s so mellow it really does not compete with the spice or the acid of tomatoes which so permeates Indian cooking. This wine would be a great introduction into wine, period. It costs about $16 at the NSLC, is French in origin and worth a try!
Tasting notes from Willm:
“Pale yellow, with greenish reflections, it has a fine nose and fruity, with aromas of stone fruits (plum). On the palate, the attack is full, fruity, a beautiful structure, it has a nice length, and notes of acacia. The finish is smooth.”
