steak & chips

steak & chips
The project was born in 1989, from being friends with a couple of local chancers, named Alvaro Palacios and Rene Barbier, who persuaded the owner, Daphne Glorian, that some old Garnacha vines on the local licorella (schist) soils might just make a decent bottle of wine. The first 10 vintages were made at Barbier’s Clos Mogador until Daphne purchased an old cellar from Palacios. The wines have gone from strength to strength, mixing the characteristic dense fruit, exotic spice and licorella minerality with a freshness and elegance that sets the wine apart from many of this grand appellation.

What to drink with... Steak & Chips.

Time to get out the big guns!

If you like a Malbec, hearty Cabernet Sauvignon, complex blend, now’s the time to open it. The meat will be succulent and full flavoured so will easily take big tannins and higher alcohol. If you’re having a knob of herb and garlic butter on your steak, the wines mentioned earlier will cope just fine. If you’ve chosen a peppercorn sauce, reduce the oak and alcohol in the wine, otherwise it’s the spice that will be emphasised. If you prefer your meat well done or it’s a little burnt on the BBQ, move to a smoother/riper red, for example a blend with Merlot in it.
