Red meat and red wine is a classic pairing for a reason! The tannins in reds bond with and soften the protein of the meat, bringing out its savoury flavours and juiciness.
A lovely Merlot is a splendid example. Its soft berry succulence pairs superbly with chef Johan van Schalkwyk’s grilled beef fillet served with Mediterranean vegetables, tossed with feta and homemade dukkah. Add some freshly ground salt and pepper to your fillet and watch how the wine’s aromas and flavours come alive.
