Pairing with Mexican Chicken
Mexican spices are a little different in that they are hotter, set in slower, and burn a lot longer.
For this job, Wesson recommended another sparkling wine, a Bannock Station 2000 Sparkling Shiraz from Australia.
"This is one of my favourite sparkling wines, and I really think it could kick any soft drinks ass," says Wesson. "Although the alcohol is quite high, around 14 per cent, its the perfect complement for just about anything. Its really quite amazing how well this goes with food."
No matter what you eat, Wesson is confident that theres a match out there somewhere. Youll know it, "when the wine makes the food taste better, and the food makes the wine taste better."
