Wine Pairings w/ Asian Foods

Yes, I know there have been a few threads on this already; don't feel compelled to duplicate what's already there. I have a wine group that gets together monthly, every month we have a different theme - sometimes just wine-related, sometimes tied to food pairings. This month is wine w/ Asian foods. Here's the food lineup, please suggest either a perfect match for one dish or something you'd be interested in trying with multiple items ->

- chicken & mushroom potstickers w/ soy-garlic dipping sauce
- vegetable spring rolls (tofu, rice noodles, shiitake, carrot, avocado, herbs)
- miso-glazed salmon
- korean-style short ribs
- peking duck
- various maki (spicy tuna, negi-hama, shrimp w/ shiso)

Extra points for unexpected combinations. I expect to see lots of reisling and gewurtz. I'm leaning toward CDP particularly w/ the duck and short ribs - but for some reason I keep hearing a small voice in the back of my head saying "Brunello?"
