Robert Oatley and Kleine Zalze
National BBQ Week is May 30th - June 5th; here are two modern-yet-sophisticated wines with plenty of fuit and character for both garden sipping and matching with barbecued food.
The saffer white is zesty-zippy, the Aussie red is big and full of ripe fruit; simply open the screwcap, pour and enjoy.
Robert Oatley Hancock & Hancock Shiraz/Grenache 2014 (£14.05
independents) packed with cooked dark plum and red cherries with peppery spice, leather, liquorice and violets; soft and supple.
Kleine Zalze Cellar Selection Chenin Blanc 2015
(£9.45, independents) zesty, aromatic and fresh; citrus and pineapple; lemongrass and a touch of pungency. Clean, pure, fresh and expressive - think kiwi Sauvignon rather than the Loire.
