Pairing wine and spicy food (Thai)

Thai food is probably the most difficult to pair with wine with its riot of sweet, sour, hot, spicy flavours. Chilli levels are often searing with umami salt notes fish sauce and lots of aromatic lemongrass and holy basil. Wines with a little bit of sweetness help to temper the chilli - rich, oily Alsace and New World Pinot Gris is a winner. Off-dry German Riesling is also good at dampening the fire without overpowering the complexity and aromas of the dish. Dry Loire Sauvignon Blanc like Sancerre and Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc can also be paired successfully.
