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 drink’s ass," says Wesson. "Although the alcohol is quite high, around 14 per cent, it’s the perfect complement for just about anything. It’s really quite amazing how well this goes with food."

No matter what you eat, Wesson is confident that there’s a match out there somewhere. You’ll know it, "when the wine makes the food taste better, and the food makes the wine taste better."
