Takeout Tastings: Your Go-To Guide for Pairing Wine & Mexican Food

While we’ve always enjoyed a taco or two, Mexican food has really exploded in Australia in recent years.

From chilli to beans, cheese and sour cream, there are so many colourful flavours in this spicy cuisine, which makes wine matching an exciting experience.

Fish tacos

Light and fresh, fish tacos are best enjoyed with zesty, unoaked white varieties with fresh acidity to bring out their best without overpowering the delicate flavours.

Matching wine styles: Sparkling wines and light aromatic whites

Pair with: Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc & blends, Pinot Grigio

Beef burritos

With their lively spice and meaty richness, beef burritos pair deliciously with moderately rich reds, but nothing too heavy or tannic, as it will clash with any spice.

Matching wine styles: Savoury, medium weight reds

Pair with: Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Barbera or cool climate Shiraz

Chicken empanadas
