Hot and Spicy Wine Pairings

If you can keep yourself from quenching your hot dish with a beer as you know it won't clash with the sweet, the sour and the spicy, hold on, as there are wines available to match with these flavours, rather than trying to match the wine with the meat or the fish. If white wine is your preference, look for aromatic and fruity options, and those of a sweeter style. If it's a red you're after, go for something light, fruity and spicy with good acidity and avoid high levels of tannin.
