Damn it's hot, and I like it like that! Apart from water and beer, we also think that spicy dishes pair well with nice, crisp white wines. We love a dry Riesling with our curries and Asian dishes, although some people may prefer an off-dry Riesling, with a very, very slight sweetness to it (they don’t make Rieslings like they used to as most these days are crisp, dry and refreshing). Of course you can also head to a reliable Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio or Rose'. If you’re up for being adventurous hit up a blend such as this one with your meal.
If you’re in the mood for a red wine with your spicy dish then perhaps something light like a Pinot Noir, or fruit-driven such as a Merlot or Tempranillo will keep your taste buds in check.
Of course if the food is mega-spicy then your taste buds may just be on a different planet so just savour every minute of it and enjoy... mmm... I’m salivating just writing about it!
under the liquor control reform act 1998 it is an offence to supply alcohol to a person under the age of 18 years (penalty exceeds $17,000) and for a person under the age of 18 years to purchase or receive liquor (penalty exceeds $700)
here at squashed grapes we are passionate about great wine so let's all be responsible through drinking in moderation and for the love of wine (oh, and food which we think goes hand in hand)
