specifically, tord kratiem prik thai (prawns with garlic, fish sauce and plenty chilli) which I am making tonight.
It's just me and dh so I don't want anything too spenny. I was thinking a nice gewurztraminer, but can such be had for under a tenner?

Gewurtztraminer or Riesling are the good choices for Thai.

There is a Spanish wine called "vina Esmerelda" which is a Gewurtztraminer blend. It is made by Torres and costs about £7-8 I think. That would probably work.

Alternatively get a Thai beer: singa or beer Chang.

aye Gewurtztraminer is good or some Viogniers would be 'sweet' enough

I like the sound of the spanish - right price point too.
