Endless sunshine and long warm eves makes for summertime outdoor cooking so it is no surprise July is National Grilling Month. To celebrate our great outdoors in beautiful B.C. we have selected some grillingly tasty sippers that will pair wonderfully at your next BBQ.
Trapiche Pinot Gris
Trapiche is Argentina’s largest fine wine exporter. This is a refreshing wine crafted in the Italian Pinot Grigio fashion with lifted aromas of ripe pear, lemon, and red apple. Dry, with crisp acidity and medium bodied, it makes for an easy drinking style. Flash seared scallops on the grill with a squeeze of lemon and a stone fruit salsa will make for some happy campers.
Domaine La Croix Belle Syrah
This Languedoc Syrah from the south of France is ripe with velvety tannins and is brimming with blackberry, plum and liquorice spice flavours. This is an easy and approachable style of Syrah. Heat up the barbie and throw those burgers on!
When winemaker Joel Peterson was out picking his grapes for this old vine blend, he was besieged by circling ravens, thunder and lightning. What came of this whirlwind was a brilliantly mastered blend of Petite Sirah, Carignan, Zinfandel and Syrah all from Sonoma. This wine is big, rich and luscious with firm integrated tannins and offers sweet black fruits mixed with baking spice and smoky earth on the palate. Grilled red meats with a hint of char and slathered in steak sauce would master this pairing.
West Cork Black Cask Irish Whiskey
Crafted using a blend of 66% grain whiskies along with 33% malt whiskey. It is then matured in ex-Bourbon barrel and transferred to newly XX charred casks for finishing. The result is a smooth and spicy whiskey with a smoky sweetness encompassing notes of vanilla and baked stone fruits. Perfect match for grilled and charred anything!
