When it comes to barbecue, South African wines really know how to shine. Warmer climates make for riper grapes and full-flavoured wines that can be a great match for smoky, chargrilled food. Here are some pairings for the ultimate barbie:
1x Black Oystercatcher, Rosé 2019
No barbecue is complete without a dry, crisp and fruity Rosé for sipping on while the coals get up to temperature. Fresh from the Cape Agulhas coast, this bottle is light, fresh and captures the essence of the seaside.
1x Kanonkop, Kadette Pinotage 2018
Burgers, grilled lamb or ribs all work beautifully with this meaty Pinotage. Full-bodied with a muscular tannin structure, it can more than hold its own against chargrilled flavours and spicy barbecue sauces. Enjoy in true South African style alongside meat seasoned with a traditional braai spice rub.
1x GlenWood, Vigneron’s Selection Chardonnay 2018
If it’s grilled chicken or fish, this is your wine. It’s bold enough to match strong BBQ flavours, adding a complimentary creaminess, while cutting through fattier fish with a burst of acidity. It works well with veggie burgers too.
1x Rustenberg, Stellenbosch Malbec 2019
Big, full-bodied and fruity. This Malbec will easily stand up to grilled meats and has a touch of spice that will compliment spicy seasonings or condiments. Expect dark fruit flavours with notes of pepper and tobacco.
1x Boekenhoutskloof, The Chocolate Block 2019
Flame grilled steak, lamb chops or burger call for a big red wine. Cue The Chocolate Block, a rich and smooth Swartland red with a smoky, spiciness to match smoky meat flavours.
1x Babylonstoren, Chenin Blanc 2020
Light, crisp and full of juicy fruit flavours. This refreshing and drinkable white is perfect for sipping on its own or alongside salads and light fish dishes.
