Tex-Mex needs a fresh and crispy wine with good acidity. Riesling Spätlese is excellent with Mexican food.

Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer from Alsace (France) can also work well, if there is a little residual sugar.

If you go for Rosé, go for something strong. American Syrah Rosé is typically made with the "Saignée Method", making the wine darker, richer, and bolder, compared to other Rosés.

If you want to drink red, choose a wine with fresh fruit and good acidity.

Stay away from rough tannins.

Fruity Red wines with high acidity include Spanish Tempranillo wines and Italian Sangiovese wines.

A Pinot Noir or Gamay will also do the job.
