Hot wings cool wine

Can't take the heat of those spicy chicken wings? Pair them with a sweet, high acid Riesling. The residual sugar of the wine tames the savage heat.

We especially love the Prinz 2007 Kabinett Riesling from the Rheinghau. Nose of petrol and strong flavors of pineapple, apricot and tangerine.

You may think you don't like sweet, white wines but when they are paired with ethnic cuisines such as Thai, Indian or American soul food, you just might change your mind.
