Get ready to get in-your-face messy! With the unofficial kick-off to summer creeping up, thoughts of grilled foods and outdoor festivities are marinating in our minds. After the long winter, we’re ready to head outside and throw some meat and veggies on the ‘braai’ ( South African for barbecue.) Our pitmaster’s pick with BBQ fare, Indaba Mosaic.
This Cabernet Sauvignon dominated red blend – with a touch Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc – will bring even more lipsmacking flavors and aromas to your chargrilled meal. The wine’s ripe and brawny berry fruit stand up to smoky rubs and tangy sauces accompanying pork and chicken, and its soft nature washes down sides of baked beans and potato salad with blue cheese and bacon. It’s the perfect Memorial Day weekend red, food-friendly and approachable, all without burning a hole in your pocket.
