Rieslings tend to work well with spicy foods, we recommend our Kung Fu Girl Riesling (£16.95) by Charles Smith of Washington State as a good pairing for this dish. Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc can also work well with spicy pasta dishes. We recommend our Riverby Estate New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc (£15.95) or the Riverby Estate Chardonnay (£21.95).
