Great Wines for Grilling
It sometimes happens that we get fantastic wine recommendations we just have to pass along, and here are two by Natalie Maclean, the creator of the useful app Nat Decants we reviewed in May. In a recent a e-mail, Natalie suggested we try the 2010 Sileni Estates Sauvignon Blanc Selection, and the 2009 Perrin Les Cornuds Vinsobres.
Here’s what Natalie had to say about these winners:
“2010 Sileni Estates Sauvignon Blanc Selection, New Zealand: Vibrant lime and chive notes with some lemongrass zest on the finish. Pair with grilled veggies and seafood. $15.95 Score: 89/100”
“2009 Perrin Les Cornuds Vinsobres, Rhône, France: Juicy, chewy and satisfying, this full-bodied red is the Ultimate Barbecue Wine for steak and hamburgers. $15.00 Score: 90/100”
Needless to say, we were not disappointed with Natalie’s recommendations, hence this posting! (And Nat is “right on” when she dubs the Perrin Les Cornuds Vinsobres the “Ultimate Barbecue Wine.”) Enjoy!
