Long Weekend Wine!

People with snack & wine (S. Tyrolean wine festival: Törggelen)

What’s better than a weekend – a Long Weekend!   For me, a long weekend is a chance to try new recipes, eat some good food, and of course, drink some great wine.  And that’s exactly what I did, and of course the grill was fired up!

I haven’t had a steak in a while, so that was one of my choices for the grill.  This is one of my favorite wines to go with steak.

Vineyard-Select-Shiraz

It’s Angove McLaren Vale Shiraz from Australia.  This one is about $25.00 at the NLC and I love this wine.  It’s what Australian Shiraz is all about.  Aged for about 16 months in oak barrels before release, I know it will go well with all grilled food… but I love it with steak.

If that’s a little too pricey for you, this is another great McLaren Vale Shiraz from Australia that I really like.  De Bortoli McLaren Vale Shiraz is a great pick, and under $20 at the NLC.

Enjoyed a couple of great Malbecs from Argentina, including a Santa Julia Reserva Malbecs for about $15.  Great reasonably priced wine.

This wine is big and bold tasting, and boy, there’s nothing like a Malbec from the Mendoza region of Argentina.    I had this wine with a new recipe of chili and lime chicken with roasted potatoes and it was a great combination.

What does the long weekend mean for you?  Food?  Wine?  I look forward to hearing from you.
