An Aussie Sauvignon/Semillon Brilliant with Balinese Chicken

We found a great Balinese recipe from Rick Stein – Chicken Braised in Coconut Milk.  The Balinese spice paste is wonderful.  Lots of Thai-like flavours, so we opened a bottle of Westend Estate Riverina Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2009 from Sunday Times Wine Club, which we previously found went very well with a Thai Green Curry (see 1 May 2011).  Aromatic, tropical fruits together with lemony citrus flavours and a lovely creaminess.  This was a really brilliant match with this dish.
