Pinot Grigio enjoys a high reputation worldwide thanks largely to its versatility. The grape is also known by its other names, Grauburgunder and Pinot Gris, and produces wonderfully refreshing and tangy white wines.
Until recently the Tempranillo was a hidden secret amongst Spanish wine drinkers. For the Spaniards it is the most respected grape variety and made Spanish viticulture famous, largely through its use in Riojas.
A bouquet of pear, pineapple and melon rise from the glass, and the wines finish with a smooth well-balanced aftertaste.
The strong and fruity Tempranillo wines have aromas of black cherry, wild blackberry and black currant, culminating in a warm smooth finish.
Why they match
Today’s burgers and steaks are prepared in a wide variety of ways from a multitude of ingredients and are often served with chutneys, pickle and dressings – a Pinot Grigio or Tempranillo are therefore recommended as the accompanying wine due to their versatility and flexibility.
