Dry curry grilled prawns with spiced rice salad and fresh peach salsa

When asked to pair Ernst Gouws & Co’s Chardonnay I could not think of a better pairing than this recipe. The subtle spiciness of the prawns’ pairs well with the creamy and textured Chardonnay. The fresh peach salsa picks up the citrus aromas and makes for a delicious meal.
