At Indian Accent, from New Dehli star-chef Manish Mehtrotra, the excitement isn’t only the innovative food: It’s also Daniel Beedle’s wine list. Beedle emphasizes aroma and texture above all, key characteristics with Mehtrotra’s complex dishes. Riesling leads the way, from Germany and Austria to Slovakia, followed up by an impressive selection of chenin blanc, grüner veltliner and sauvignon blanc, not to mention trousseau gris, Hunter semillon and Corsican vermentino. You might opt for the wine pairing with the tasting menu, or choose a bottle like Movia’s 2009 Veliko Bianco to experience how one versatile wine can match a range of intense flavors.
