A week dedicated to celebrating the very best type of summer food there is, it also lends itself to the beginning of summer garden party get togethers with your family and friends. Of course, where would a summer BBQ be without a cracking wine to perfectly match your expert BBQ chefing?
The chargrilled flavours of ribeye steaks, homemade burgers, proper hot dogs and succulent portobello mushrooms lend themselves to one of our most favourite wines: Vinalba’s Reserve Malbec x Abandon Ship. The softness and full-body of the wine complements the bold (and delicious) flavours of barbecued dishes to an absolute tee. Fresh and vibrant notes of dark fruit, followed by a hint of bitter dark chocolate builds a new character into the food, and what’s more, it’s just a really fantastic crowd pleasing wine.
This Malbec isn’t as heavy as some can be, giving it a lighter palate, which means it’s easy to sip away at throughout your BBQ and will even be a hit with those who aren’t usually partial to a glass of red (though they will be after trying this).
What’s more, it’s a limited edition, so you’ll be bringing something very special to the garden table for you and your guests. The Reserve Malbec x Abandon Ship is a homage to everyone who helped bring Vinalba’s wines to life over the years, we think that definitely deserves raising a glass in the sunshine to!
