Indian Food pairing

I prefer beer with Indian. 

My second choice is off-dry Gewurztraminer. 

Off-dry Rieslings and Pinot Gris and some bubbly wines would all come out with or ahead of GV for the Indian foods I eat. But...

GV -dry- but with a little RS should be a decent pairing for some Indian food. My favorite producer is F.X. Pichler. The M and the Kellerberg are my favorites but all the single vineyard stuff is great.  Almost all F.X. Pichler wines are bottled *just* off dry. I also adore Nikolaihof and Prager but those can be bone dry so you’d have to double check.  I forget which bottlings have been what and it often varies slightly between vintages.  I’ve been impressed with Hirsch and Brundlmayer in the past, as well. Although particularly Brundlmayer can be bone dry.  And, like with the others, it varies between bottlings and vintages. Haven’t had either producer in quite some time, though. In general, my go-to basic GV has been Nikolaihof im Weingebirge Federspiel.  The 2015 is great. Quite dry but could work. But I think the current release is 2016. 

I know there are plenty of other well regarded GV producers like Knoll that winoca suggested, I just don’t have much familiarity with them.
