Matt, our wine buyer, will take you on voyage of discovery around some well-known and not so well-known Spanish regions to find red wines from classic Spanish varieties that pair well with the flavours of the barbecue.
Tempranillo is always a crowd pleaser so we have some crackers included in the line-up, while Mencia is a must-try for the Pinot Noir lover. The Priorat is predominantly Garnacha-based, a nice contrast to the juicier Monastrell.
One of the reasons why Spanish reds work so well with barbecue food is the climate – lots of sunshine to ripen the grapes, resulting in wines with more body and softer tannins.
