The key to a great grilling wine is not only one that will pair with your menu, but also a wine that you can sip and savor with friends while you admire each others grilling prowess and knowledge. And with the unofficial kick-off of grilling season coming with Memorial Day weekend, we’ve got your secret weapon. A bit on the sweeter side and loaded with sophistication, this blend of Pinotage and Shiraz from South Africa not only offers the perfect drink, but plenty to talk about at as well.
Made in a similar method to Amarone and Ripasso wines of Italy, the 2014 Bellingham Pinopasso offers Italian sophistication along with a crowd-pleasing character. Blackberry, sweet spice, mint, licorice, vanilla and coffee predominate on the very aromatic nose.
