The days are longer, the sun is warmer, and May (with its bank holidays) has arrived. That can only mean one thing - BBQs! So, it's time to clean up the grill, locate the firelighters, and cremate a sausage or two on the Weber (other brands are also available).
So, the following are our liquid recommendations to enhance your alfresco dining experience:
Anton Bauer Gmirk 2018 - A fantastic single vineyard Gruner Veltliner, full of fresh tropical fruit, with a long crisp finish. Perfect with the season’s asparagus, or some grilled halloumi.
Dorrance Blanc 2018 - Gloriously textured Viogner from a Frenchman in South Africa. Throw some shrimps on the braai and this will work a treat!
Domaine du Peras Rose 2018 - The sun has begun to shine so it must be rose o’clock! This is a great example of a pale ‘pink', from the south of France, with lovely dry strawberry fruit.
Las Piedras Malbec 2018 - Lovely juicy fruit, structure and balance. An Argentine classic. Great with your finest homemade burgers.
Alves de Sousa Caldas 2016 - Medium bodied with dark fruit, and a little spice, make this an ideal companion to lamb chops cooked with rosemary and garlic.
David Traeger Three Centuries Shiraz 2011 - Plum and mulberry fruit, that Heathcote eucalyptus, and a little oak. Not overly alcoholic and an excellent partner of red meat.
