A Chilean Malbec is Very Good with Barbecued Rump Steaks

2015-04-22 17.53.20 HDRWe decided to cook some steak on our barbecue and chose Rump Steaks with Mustard and Brandy Sauce from Supercook.

The steaks are rubbed all over with crushed garlic and French mustard, then grilled and a brandy, cream and paprika sauce is poured over them.  We served the steaks with chunky oven chips, grilled portobello mushrooms and roasted tomatoes.

Like many we enjoy a Malbec with steak. While these are usually Argentinian, we enjoyed a Chilean one – Acaballo Malbec 2011 from the Sunday Times Wine Club.

We tasted mainly red fruits, vanilla sweetness and a smooth, chocolaty creamy finish.  A very good match with the steak.
