The smokey flavours of bbq food need some full flavoured wines to match, says Rob Buckhaven
1 Floral White Asda Marsanne Vin de Pays D’Oc (£4) gives grilled fish an orange-blossom boost.
“Vin de Pays” on a label means “country wine”, and is France’s third highest wine classification.
2 Raspberry Rose The raspberry notes of Yali Cabernet Sauvignon Rose (£6.99, Morrisons) work well with pork.
Although relatively new to the international wine scene, Chile’s been producing wine for 450 years.
3 Herby Red Tagus Creek Trincadeira (£5.99, Tesco) is a bramble and thyme delight with juicy burgers.
The Trincadeira grape is used in the production of Port, where it adds colour and herbal notes.
Tapas combines a huge variety of flavours, and Spain produces wines that perfectly complement the tastes of its home cuisine
1 Seafood soul
Viña Ludy Albariño (£6.48, Asda) adds a peachy zing to grilled prawns.
“Alba-riño” translates as “white [wine] from the Rhine”, and is thought to be related to the Riesling grape.
2 In the pink Tesco Finest Navarra Garnacha Rosé (£6.99) gives spicy tomato a thwack of strawberry.
Rosé from Navarra in Spain is made by the saignée method; where grape skins are bled to add colour.
3 Meat feast Vina Sol Tempranillo (£6.80) Morrisions) is a black-cherry knockout with spiced chorizo.
Tempranillo literally means “little early one” in Spanish due to it being an early ripening grape.
