Tom Laithwaite picks some firm BBQ favourites and a rich NEW find
That glorious summer soundtrack of a sizzling BBQ demands to be matched by reds that fire with flavour. Most flavourful of all are the Black Reds ... our customers’ favourite style. Highlights include Dark Corner, from a star winemaker Down Under. It’s a blend of luscious Durif and spicy Shiraz, with mouthfuls of black-fruit bliss. Argentina and South Africa vie for the title of ‘world’s biggest carnivores’, so it’s no surprise that Armando H Malbec from Mendoza and House of Fun Shiraz Malbec from the Western Cape are tailor-made for steaks and sausages. You’ll enjoy these and more at just £99.99 for the dozen. My advice: take the two-case deal and you pay just £7.49 a bottle – a handy saving of £64 – plus you’ll get FREE delivery too.
Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
