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.
