Curry Week - Cune and Robert Oatley
October 9th - 15th is Curry Week - if you didn't already know. According to research, the most popular curry is a korma, traditionally a sweetish, slightly bland coconut-based dish.
Indian curries are not always a natural match for wine, being rather heavy and rich and needing a pint (or two) of beer; if, however, you like the more delicate and nuanced flavours of a Thai coconut curry, here are two that will match.
Cune Barrel Fermented Blanco 2016
(£10.15, Waitrose, The Co-op)
orchard fuits and pineapple, with oaky, leesy minerality and good underpinnings. Clean, pure and harmonious.
Robert Oatley Signature Riesling 2015
(£13.15, Cambridge Wine Merchants and other independents) classic flintsmoke-dieselly nose with ripe, zippy lemon-lime, pineapple and a fresh, pebbly mineral backbone.
