Traditionally, Vietnamese seafood has a better balance of flavors, and not as spicy as Thai or Indian seafood.

Riesling Spätlese Trocken has the minerality and acidity needed to complement the flavours of seafood, and enough residual sugar to stand up to spices like chilli. Riesling also pairs well with the flavors of Pho (Vietnamese noodle soup).

Txakoli is a high-acid, slightly fizzy, Spanish white wine with a nerve. Aged in old barrels, it tastes fantastic with both catfish and shrimp rolls.

Grüner Veltliner has green pepper notes that seems to complement the herbal notes found in many Vietnamese dishes.

Both Marsanne and Roussanne are very food friendly. They both pair well with rich seafood, creamy sauces and spicy flavors.

Food and Wine Pairing

Food and wine pairing is highly dependent on both the taste components in the food and the taste components in the wine.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
