Primal +wine

I am a few days in to my primal cooking journey. Adding to the challenge, I was keeping in mind what wine I would serve with the dish!  
For those unfamiliar with a primal diet - it's a whole foods approach to eating that eliminates modern processed foods and limits carbohydrate intake.  A spicy sausage dish caught my eye from Mark Sisson's Quick and Easy Cookbook. I decided to pair it with WineShops Frisch Gewürztraminer. While I'm not usually a fan of sweeter wines, I was hoping the spiciness from the meal would pair well with the wine.
- Spicy pork sausage cut bite sized wrapped in lightly steamed cabbage leaves, toothpick, dipped in grainy mustard
- Sautéed portobello mushrooms in olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes
- Carrots and celery in dip; spinach, parsley, mayo, lemon juice, scallions
The meal was delicious. The wine was well structured and sweet, yet paired well with the spiciness of the meal!  Yum!  Thanks to Nuno for the photo!
