Scorchin’ ‘Strayan Summer Selection: The Bonza BBQ Bonanza Edition

Often as Aussies we get asked about our national cuisine but 'cos we’re a melting pot, we’ll eat pretty much anything, even fondue. ‘Cept in Summer, when BBQ is front of mind and straight in the gob for all of us sun-drenched inhabitants of the Antipodes. And if you’ve now got a hankering for fondue, forget it! Grab some cheese Kranskys instead, they’ve got the fondue on the inside.

With matches both marvellous and meaty in mind, we’ve magicked up nine stunning reds which can burble with burgers, are bang on with bangers, will bend an elbow with the brisket or tear a t-bone a new one.

Like the following...

A 96pt Barossa Shiraz off a 160-year-old vineyard – big, rich and juicy, with stunning depth of fruit. BBQ: Just the trick with a rare to medium t-bone. A little charring on the outside please.

A 97pt McLaren super premium Shiraz – full tilt, polished McLaren Shiraz with just the right perfume of cedar. BBQ: Our troth for the most gourmet of snaggers you can conjure.

A 6 x gold medal winning Barossa Shiraz – rich, deep, dark and languid. BBQ: Guaranteed to tastefully redecorate the tonsils whilst clearing an enchanted path for a whopping wagyu burger.

A pair of belter bush vine Grenache off 70+ and 120-year-old vines respectively. BBQ: Lamb backstrap with a BBQ plum sauce. Side of roasted beetroot pimped with a potion of reduced balsamic.

A fancy Fleurieu Cab blend that was wine of the day in a line-up of 30+ wines we looked at a few months ago. BBQ: Slow cooked brisket with slaw in a toasted brioche bun. An invocation or two of green hot sauce will see your lips levitating.

It doesn’t all have to be red meat either (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

With alternative protein front of mind, we’ve very carefully summoned the following.

A gold winning Pinot Gris laden with pears and plenty of texture. BBQ: Alchemic when poured with marinated tofu or squid.

A trophy winning 2015 vintage Sparkling which is toasty and complex. BBQ: Grilled stone fruits. OR whole cauli, BBQed and drizzled with olive oil and pomegranate molasses. Your guests be salivating superlatives and perhaps just a little surprised. ‘Strewth Barry, that's F#$%^ng magic, and who knew you could cook!’

A super intense Kilikanoon Riesling, with low yields leading to an intensity of lemons and limes. BBQ: this spellbinding Rizza will pash on with prawns with aplomb.

You should need to hand over about 7 Grey Nurses for all of this wizardly wonderment... but 'cos it’s our annual Aussie Summer barbie pack, it’s yours for just $250, Grab a pack or 5 and let the magic that is the season of the BBQ begin!

    Wines In This Pack
    McLaren Vale, SA
    Gold Medal, 97pts Sam Kim, 94pts James Halliday, 95pts The Real Review, 95pts Bob Campbell
    This is unequivocally an even better edition of the Martin’s than we have seen previously, which is perhaps no surprise given it is a product of the 2018 vintage. Again, we see relatively low alcohol for a big Aussie red which, perhaps counterintuitively, allows the wine to appear as more fruit dense and concentrated than it might if it were half a degree or a full degree more ‘potent’. Fruits are blacks and blues, depth and length are superb, cedar and vanilla are a perfumed accompaniment to the fruit rich nose, and the tannins, polished, waxy and plentiful. The overall package, outstanding!
    1 x Mitolo Serpico Cabernet 2018 (RRP $89.00)
    McLaren Vale, SA
    96pts Sam Kim, 93pts Wine Advocate
    A groundbreaking Aussie Cabernet in as much as it is made in the Amarone style, with grapes air dried for up to 8 weeks prior to fermentation. It is both concentrated and ethereal with florals and black tea on the nose – the palate awash with chocolate, coffee, cassis, blueberries, herbs, licorice and minerality. Double or triple decant a few hours before drinking.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    95pts Sam Kim, 94pts Kim Brebach, 92pts The Real Review
    Produced from 120-year-old bush vines, this is an exceptionally concentrated wine. Dark fruits are bolstered with red as the wine straddles the line between confection and good black stuff and the wine finishes with super fine tannins. Superb.
    Eden Valley, SA
    96pts Sam Kim, 96pts Kim Brebach, 94pts James Halliday, 93pts Real Review
    An Iron fist in a velvet glove, featuring big tannins and even bigger fruit. Grapes were taken from the revered Stonegarden vineyard, planted in 1858. Aromas and flavours can best be described as dark! Plums, chocolate, pudding, spice, cinnamon and more. Complex, beguiling, deep, and delicious!
    Barossa Valley, SA
    Trophy, 6 x Gold Medals, 96pts Wine Matrix, 96pts Sam Kim, 95pts Winestate Magazine
    A rich and inviting perfume on the nose, with red fruits, coffee, black fruits, pepper, and clove all in evidence. The palate is rich, big, smooth, and intense and the wine finishes with plush silken tannins. Good already and has the legs to stay out in front for another decade.
    Fleurieu Peninsula, SA
    95pts James Halliday
    Whole berries open fermented and then matured in French oak, 20% of which was new. This is a big and opulent wine, packed with flavour. This opens with a dusting of cocoa powder, is packed to the gunnels with deep, dark, brooding black fruits, and finishes with plenty of cedary goodness.
    Adelaide Hills, SA
    94pts Kim Brebach, Gold, Top Gold and Trophy - Melbourne Royal Wine Show
    Truly a modern classic, this Adelaide Hill Sparkling is all about high quality fruit spending 4 years on lees to develop texture and complexity. There’s a full, rich mouthfeel and texture and delicate toasty notes of warm honey, cumquat, truffle and tarragon underpinned by hints of pear and ginger. The length an intensity are fantastic.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    95pts James Halliday, 91pts Nick Stock
    Vibrant and richly fruited, this is a lively yet slurpable beast. Plums, dark chocolate, cherries, beetroot, spice, pepper and charcuterie all competing for your attention. A cracker now and with 5-8 years ahead of it at least. Fruit is sourced from growers in the Barossa sub regions of Bethany, Vine Vale, Stonewell, Light Pass, Marananga & the Hallett Valley.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    93pts Kim Brebach, 92pts Sam Kim, 92pts James Halliday
    From old bush vines planted in 1947. Dry grown, hand pruned and picked, these vines produce exceptionally concentrated fruit. White pepper, kirsch and cherries in a medium bodied yet muscular and fruit intense setting. Plenty of fine tannins to finish. Drink now or cellar for 5-8 years.
    Clare Valley, SA
    Whilst 2020 was a challenging growing season and yields were very low, fruit quality and concentration were excellent, even exemplary. This first edition Kilikanoon Meyman’s Riesling is indeed exemplary, offering a wonderful fragrance, flavours built around pristine lemons and lime, great texture and exceptional length.
    Fleurieu Peninsula, SA
    3 x Gold Medals, 93pts Sam Kim, 93pts Kim Brebach
    This is a rich, smooth and silken beast, replete with blackcurrant, brambles, fresh tobacco, and a whack of cedar. The palate is textual and offers excellent length. Has a long life ahead of it – worth decanting if you are going to drink it now.
    Fleurieu Peninsula, SA
    93pts Sam Kim, Gold Medal, 93pts Wine Showcase Magazine
    A delightfully fruit dense and creamy PG. Pears to the front, with and apply character too, lovely aromas and brightness of both acidity and fruit. Finishes lip smackingly dry and fresh.
