It is critical to address these specific challenges directly in order to create a great pairing that will enhance your overall dining experience. Not too long I had a great pairing when I used this advice and ordered a crisp Zinfandel with my favorite Indian takeaway in Loughborough
Things You Should Avoid
In general, when you are pairing a spicy hot dish and red wine, be sure to avoid going with a higher alcohol option in addition to any red wine that has been aged in oak. They aren't bad as a standalone wine at all. However, red wine that has both or one of these characteristics will usually be an overpowering or poor choice when paired with a spicy dish.
