GREAT GRILLING – FOR WINE’S SAKE
There’s nothing like the scents of a summer BBQ. Weber, Broil King, Napoleon, Dukane, whatever your brand of equipment, or even a simple grate over a bed of red hot embers, there will be smoke, heaven sent. Sweet smoke, resulting from charring meat, sizzling of the marbling and your preferred BBQ sauce, the combination is a carnivorous seduction. The taste – OH SO DEE-LISH-US. But you need a good red wine to stand up to the grilled offering. And it’ got to be reasonably priced too. Our Ripasso fits the bill on all fronts. Deep red with good body and structure, we encounter rich, fruit flavours of blackberries and blueberries. In the bouquet we’ve got coffee, smoke and vanilla. Big on taste with a full body and great intensity. The alcohol level is appropriate at 14.5 % and the price is right at $18.30. So bring on the meat!
