Chicken: Eastern


Eastern foods can be difficult to pair with wine.
​They often use very distinct, spicy flavors which can clash with wine. If your taste buds are set on having wine, though, a mildly-chilled Riesling would be a good match for a spicy or highly favored Chinese or Indian dish.

The sugars in these wines help smooth out the spices in the food. The Gewurztraminer also has a spicy raciness that would match the food.

Japanese food, with its generally lighter spices and cleaner flavors tend to go with a Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. Don't forget a nice socket for your sushi night out.
