Big Flavoured Food
Rich, heavyweight foods like roast meats need a full bodied wine which is high in tannins. Tannins are important because they react with protein. So foods with a high protein content, especially red chewy meat, will soften the effects of the tannin on the palate. This explains why wines from high-tannin grape varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Shiraz pair well with roast meats, stews and steaks.
Sometimes they make you an offer you can't refuse. Here is just such a one; smooth, easy Tempranillo. Perfect easy drinking red.

Ventisquero wines shine at all levels, in my opinion. This Merlot has all the attributes you want; soft easy fruit, deep colour, very drinkable and more-ish. Drink now to end 2017
Just imagine sitting in a french bistro, in the sunshine, with a very comforting bottle of red....
Soft, buttery Chardonnay....
A very soft, perfumed style of red....
Dry, soft, fruity, fat and very more-ish. Another stylish example of South Africa's classic white.
Gold Medal winner in Paris...again. Great Claret.
Super new 2015 vintage. 2013 Vintage. The Guardian ...."try a perennial favourite of mine."
Classic Rioja to me will always be an aged Rioja. This is not classic; it is young, new wave and frankly delicious!
