Germany, $39

Thai food is notorious for being difficult to pair with wine. It’s spicy, it’s sweet, it’s savoury. But at a recent lunch at Vancouver’s amazing Maenam, one wine shone for its ability to pair and complement almost every dish Chef Angus An brought out: this bottling from Selbach Oster. Crispy Pork Belly Stir fry? No problem. Panaeng Curry of Beef Chuck? Squid Salad with Chili jam dressing? Bam and bam, good. It’s not cheap, but as one of my dining companions said after a sip, “Is there a better desert island than this?” He might be right.

Psst: Try the German wine for yourself at Maenam’s (admittedly thematically inappropriate) Chinese New Year’s celebration. Get one of their limited tickets here.
