Sunny Mondays Call for Shiraz and Outside-in-Cheddar Sliders

Jul 16, 2012
Sunny Mondays Call for Shiraz and Outside-in-Cheddar Sliders
Turn your Monday into a delicious feast

barbecue-and-wine_01.Do rainy days and Mondays always get you down? One source reports that Mondays are actually the least likely day of the week for rain. It’s a perfect excuse to host a casual outdoor barbecue! 

It is Monday after all, so avoid extra hassle and kitchen mess by grilling outside. To cut your hosting costs, prepare sliders that delight the cheese senses from the inside out. Sliders might be slight in the hand, but grilled meat is hefty on flavor and needs a wine that is equally big and bold. Shiraz is both these things plus a perfect complement to the sharp cheddar cheese, which no one will forget--inside or out.

Two wines we recommend:

SCHILD ESTATE Shiraz 2009 (Barossa Valley, Australia) $21.95 

CHAPOUTIER (Australia), Tournon Victorian Shiraz “Mathilda" 2010 (Victoria, Australia) $14.95 

Do you have other great slider pairings? Share them below!

Pelerin Syrah goes with any red meat meal. It's worth a special search of the market to find, as is their Pinot Noir.
