Spicy Chile Grilled Chicken

Chicken can be such a neutral base that almost any style of preparation can be made to work spectacularly well when grilling. Case in point the myriad spicy cooking styles that saturate cookbooks and websites. We love our spicy food, that’s for sure, but what wine works best when we need to douse the fire in our mouths? This recipe starts us out on the right foot, as it combines a bit of sweetness that helps to temper that heat. A bold rose with an edge of sweetness would work perfectly here, standing up to the heat and dealing with the touch of sweetness this recipe delivers. And yes, that is white Zinfandel you’re seeing down there. Every wine has its moment! If you just can’t do white Zin, Rose d’Anjou is France’s answer, a classic off-dry rose!

Two to try:

Buehler Vineyards Rosé Blend ($10)

Remy Pannier Rosé d'Anjou ($12)
