White Wines for Spice

Pine Ridge Chenin Viognier 2009
With 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Viognier, this fresh, crisp, light-bodied, dry white is very versatile. You can drink it solo, pair it with Central Market’s spicy peel ‘n eat shrimp, or sip it alongside your chips and habanero guacamole. The Chenin and Viognier combo offers a fragrant bouquet of fresh fruit notes. On the palate, enjoy a slightly off-dry harmony of fruit flavors, including honeydew melon, ruby red grapefruit, juicy white peach and crisp golden apple. Bright acidity and a clean, refreshing finish round out this delightful wine.

Chateau Blanc de Barat 2010
This crisp, fruit-driven, medium-bodied wine offers good purity and zestiness. Owned by the famous Lurton family, this great Sauvingon Blanc is perfect with spicy grilled chicken! Very limited production, Central Market buys the majority of the winery’s cases, allowing us to deliver elegant Bordeaux white for less than $10.

These whites are the perfect complement for all things spicy. But even if you are not in the mood to spice up your meal, these selections make great aperitifs on warmer Texas nights.
