Barbequed beer-can chicken

Ahoy chardonnay squealers!  You’re gonna be wanting to know about the groovy and gorgeously tasty Black Estate Home North Canterbury Chardonnay 2018 ($41.99) because it’s finger-lickin’ with this chicken. The style oozes grilled citrus, layers of caramelised, spicy oak, creamy complexity and has a long, elegant, deliciously restrained finish. Its un-grafted vines are 25 years old and since 2010, they’ve been grown organically and biodynamically.
