The flavour of raw spring rolls is appealing for its expression of fresh herbs like peppermint, coriander & Thai basil. Here we recommend youthful white wines without too high a degree of acidity or particularly intense fruit. Robust white wines are a bit too sweet and opulent to harmonise with the fresh herbal flavours.
Pairs well with
- Grüner Veltliner: light and racy with subtle fruit; current vintage. The delicate fruit tones fit so wonderfully with shrimp; at the same time, the Grüner Veltliner’s spiciness carries the intensity of the fresh herbs.
- Certainly other light and fresh white wines match well also – like Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), Unoaked Chardonnay and Riesling. But they should not give off too much acidity or extreme intensive fruit tones. Robust white wines are a bit too sweet and opulent to harmonise with the fresh herbal flavours.
