Upgrade Your BBQ Wine Trio

For this weekend we’ve chosen a trio of new wines that we’re loving this summer. All three are, well, just a level above what you’d expect…perfect for impressing the neighbours should you care to share the grilled lamb chops this weekend…

Bodegas Katxina Txakolina, Spain, £18.95

Those who have spotted the random ‘x’s in the name will know that this is a Basque wine; in fact, Txakoli is the default white around the home of Pintxos/Tapas, San Sebastian.  Super-dry, fresh and edgy, this is perfect as an aperatif or for anything seafoody.  This example is so good it also has the depth of flavour and searing acidity to cut like a rapier through fattier foods and other barbequed bits. Simply a must-try; we’re selling out fast and the last of our current stock will vanish on this offer.

Palm par L’Escarelle, igp Mediterrannee, France, £13.99

Literally the only thing stopping this gorgeously elegant rose from being added to Escarelle’s more expensive Cotes de Provence blend, is that a country lane runs through the vineyard that supplies the fruit. The appellation committee took exception to this, and told the producer they must sell the wine under a lesser appellation, igp Mediterrannee. Bad news for them, and perfect for us!

Monte Antico Sangiovese blend, igt Toscana, Italy,  £14.99

This is a ridiculously good juicy-yet-savoury Supertuscan. For those not in the know, a Supertuscan is a wine from the region that eschews the restrictions of the Chianti appellation laws and does as it pleases, usually to its benefit, but must be sold under the lowly IGT status. This – a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet – walks a wonderful tightrope of freshness but also lushness, with lovely summer fruit and plenty of backbone for the grilled meat. It’s the perfect summer glugging allrounder.
