A Loire Sauvignon is Excellent with a Chicken Balti

We were looking for a Chicken Balti recipe online and found this one from Spices of India.

Cubed chicken is cooked with onions, ginger, garlic, tomato, green pepper, turmeric, yoghurt, green chilli, cardamon, bay leaf and fresh coriander.  We used Waitrose Balti paste.2014-12-24 18.14.262014-12-24 18.18.53 Spices of India say this recipe is in the authentic British restaurant style.

A very enjoyable curry that we served with rice and parathas.

We opened a bottle of Petit Villebois Sauvignon Blanc 2013, a French white from Naked Wines.  We last drank this wine with a West African chicken dish.

As before we tasted apples and minerality, but this time there was more grapefruit coming through on the crisp finish.  An excellent match with the meal and even better than last time.
