And if you where wondering what to drink, here are three wines perfect for beef

Penfolds Bin 2 Shiraz – Mataro An interesting blend of Shiraz and Mataro (Mourvèdre) from the iconic winery – Penfolds. This wine was originally more akin to a Burgundy rather than the rich, savory style we find today. The wine shows a blend of aromatic notes of crushed red fruit with complex savory notes of olives and pepperiness. The textured grippy tannins add to the structure and presence on the palate.

Ta s c a d ’ A l m e r i t a Lamuri Made from a selection of Nero d’Avola grapes cultivated on the high hills. It expresses the primary aromas, without excess from the ripening process, it’s distinguished by the variety from the warmest parts of Sicily. Different age barriques provide soft and elegant tannins, with subtle hints of wood. Its name comes from the Sicilian word for love, “L’ Amore”, the same love that Tasca d’Almerita put into its work.
