Wine pairing suggestion

Wine is a part of mustard’s heritage, as it was the must (freshly pressed fruit juice) from wine making that was first used in making prepared mustard. Shiraz pairs well with robust dishes such as this spiced rub grilled meat dish. Zinfandel (red) is another varietal that can be enjoyed with outdoor grilled meat. At its best, Zinfandel has very fruity, raspberry-like aromas and flavours and a ‘jammy’ quality.
