Recipe Notes

Wine Recommendation—Tassel Ridge Iowa St. Croix Rosé

This outstanding recipe for chili-garlic shrimp has lots of flavor, and it cries out for a wine with some body but not a wine that will overwhelm the shrimp itself. Tassel Ridge Iowa St. Croix Rosé is a dry rosé with strawberry, raspberry, peach, and nectarine notes and a slightly drying finish. It is best when served chilled.— Bob Wersen, Owner, Tassel Ridge Winery.
