With heat waves driving us to wear bikinis in every green space salvageable and BBQ for every meal of the day (three hot dogs in one sitting is perfectly acceptable), we want to ensure you stay sufficiently hydrated whilst enjoying the great British summer.
So without further ado, our favourite BBQ pairings…
Why do Argentinians make so much amazing BBQ meat? Because they have juicy Malbec to drink with it of course. Our fruit-bomb Malbec is the champion for BBQ meats and works brilliantly with rich, tangy BBQ sauces. Perfect for you carnivores out there.
With Malbec stealing the limelight with its epic BBQ pairing skills, we mustn’t forget the strong role this lighter red wine can play at the BBQ. Red with chicken or fish?! We hear you say. Oh yes. This deliciously fruity and balanced Pinot Noir has lighter flavours that don’t overpower white meat and fish.
First up representing the whites is our Albariño. For those of you that won’t be devouring a steak with burger and sausage bap, it’s the perfect match for grilled fish and salad. Crisp? Yes. Fresh? Definitely. This comes from Galicia on the northern coast of Spain, where fish and seafood are part of everyday life, so no wonder a nice cold glass of this is the best match.
Our fruity and crisp New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is perfect for those venturing beyond burgers and hot dogs. So good with veggie kebabs, grilled halloumi and prawn skewers with Thai marinades. Just thinking about it puts us in tastebud heaven.
Pair your food and wine like a pro with Most Wanted Wines this summer and remember we’d love to hear how your summer barbecue went.
