Ever wondered which wine to drink with Indian Food?

Ever wondered which wine to drink with Indian Food?  What wine goes with Indian food?

There are quite a few varieties of wine I favour with Indian food but on the blog today, I would like to share one of my favourites to drink with Indian food.   I am not really a white wine drinker (unless it has bubbles…. You know, of the French kind!) but I must say, a rich buttery white Chardonnay does win me over especially if I am having a mild dish, like dahl or a mild lamb curry.  The weight and intensity of an oaked Chardonnay balances quite well with texture and mild creamy flavours of slow cook dahl bukhara or a lamb Chennai, braised lamb in tempered mustard, curry leaves and coconut tomato gravy.

I especially love Paringa Estate’s 2018 Chardonnay with both of these curries. “The nose is complex and intriguing, with delicately nuanced aromas of citrus and white nectarine” making it a perfect pairing with dishes like dahl bukhara and lamb Chennai.  The 10acre vineyard is located on the picturesque Mornington Peninsula, with the 2018 vintage being the biggest on their record.

If you live in Melbourne, you have most likely heard of Atta, Modern Indian Restaurant in Melbourne’s seaside suburb of Albert Park.   Atta offers the finest Indian cuisine from all corners of India.

They are currently delivering dishes like dahl Bukhara and lamb Chennai, Wednesday to Sunday, with a 35km radius of Melbourne.

Follow the link below to order a meal or two from Atta and whilst you are there, why not order a bottle of Paringa Estate’s 2018 Chardonnay and spoil yourself during the stage lockdown.
