Top 10 wines in the UK press

1st July, 2013 by Andy Young

Susy Atkins and Fiona Beckett recommend wines to enjoy with a barbecue. Atkins’ choice is a “well-priced Tuscan treat” while Beckett picks out a red with a “big belt of lush, ripe fruit”.

Top 10 wines in the UK pressIn writing about barbecue wines in the Sunday Telegraph, Atkins said that “tradition dictates cracking into a hefty Australian or South African Shiraz.

“But plain, slightly smoky, chargrilled beef actually finds a better partner in medium, fresh-tasting Italian reds such as cherryish Dolcetto from Piedmont or young Sangiovese from Tuscany, or in a raspberryish, juicy red from the Loire.”

She added: “A marinade complicates matters, but the same lightish Italians work, or you might try a good-quality Beaujolais.

In The Guardian, Beckett went for a Chilean red wine, writing: “Assuming you’re creating the classic, meat-focused conflagration, there’s got to be a juicy red in the equation.”
