The Red Wine Must Haves


It’s finally getting warmer! And with it our favourite Sunday activity with family and friends: barbecuing. Here is the list of wines that go very well with your barbecue.

Before choosing wines for your barbecue, think about the flavours of your dishes. Smoke, sweet sauces or sauces with a more robust flavour than usual, red meat, grilled vegetables. These are usually flavours with character. You should choose red wines with red meat (beef, hamburger, lamb, etc.).

Considering the situation (smoke, informal atmosphere, variety of dishes), you should always choose young red wines. Surprise your best friends, your favourite colleagues and your family with the right wine on these warm days.

Lourens River Valley – 2015
CHF 16.90 instead of CHF 24.90

91 Points by James Suckling

A Bordeaux-style red blend made in a fruit-driven, approachable style. This wine is a true reflection of the terroir and what can be achieved with it in a given vintage. Wonderful evolution and longevity have made this wine a house brand. Aged over 12 months in French oak, this complex wine offers aromas of cassis, black cherry and earthy spice. Medium to full-bodied with seamless tannins and wonderful acidity, it goes well with a variety of foods.

Amandelboord – Pinotage – 2020
CHF 18.90 instead of CHF 29.00

89 Points by Decanter

The Pinotage vines are planted on well-drained blue broken shale soils at an altitude of 250 metres above sea level on the western slope of the Tygerberg and within sight of the Atlantic Ocean. Using the VSP trellis system, a typical harvest is 7 to 8 tonnes per hectare. The grapes were hand picked, fermented in open fermenters with regular push downs. After pressing, the wine was transferred to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. The Pinotage was then aged for 12 months in 12% new French barriques and 12% new American barriques.

Shiraz – 2018
CHF 14.90 instead of CHF 22.00


4.5 Stars by Platter’s

Although this wine has great flavour intensity on both the nose and palate, the Shiraz is not overwhelming and shows considered restraint. Waves of wild berry fruit give way to hints of spice and lavender on the finish. The supple tannin structure supports the wine beautifully and ensures that this wine will age gracefully.

Seriously Old Dirt – 2020
CHF 22.00 instead of CHF 39.00

92 Points by Decanter

The Seriously Old Dirt 2020 shows a youthful, deep ruby colour. This Cabernet-based blend exudes rich aromas of fresh fruit on the nose: black raspberry, ripe strawberry, plum and blackcurrant. Undertones of star anise, nutmeg and fragrant tobacco leaf complete the hedonistic experience. The Old Dirt is soft, round and spreads gracefully on the palate, developing with an abundance of fruit flavours and finishing with a spicy nuance. The vintage reflects the quintessence of elegance, with a core of satiny tannins and youthful energy.

Complex melange of inviting, deep blueberry, cassis and spicy cocoa aromas. Fresh and lively on the palate, the aromatics carry through. Structured and graceful with a velvety, soft mouthfeel and beautiful integration of oak and fruit. Complex, nuanced and subtly powerful, nothing is overplayed. Delicious, long finish.

92 Points by WINEMAG SA

The Buitenverwachting Meifort is a successful and wonderfully complex Bordeaux-style cuveé with a warm and inviting nose of elegant plum, red cherry, spicy wood and tobacco notes.

Shiraz Private Collection – 2017
CHF 19.90 instead of CHF 29.00

91 Points by WINEMAG SA

The Private Collection Syrah has a beautiful nose of black cherries, red berries and a hint of pepper and spice. The palate is seamless – the tannin dense but fine-grained. The oak is beautifully integrated and only adds to the incredible complexity. Hints of crushed granite and floral elements bring freshness to the palate, which finishes with sweet spice.
