If you’re planing to celebrate Easter with a big family roast this year, we’ve selected our top five recommendations wines to accompany Easter Roast Lamb.
Pairing wine with foods can be a challenge especially when a particular food, such as lamb, can be prepared in a variety of different ways. Although red wines are almost always paired with red meat, the type of red that can be paired with lamb meat depends entirely on the way the lamb is prepared and on the spices and flavorings used. The golden rule is the heavier the recipe, the heavier the wine. For a classic roast lamb we recommend any of the following:
Malbec Quinta Generacion, Goyenechea, Medoza
This is a deep red with purple hues, with a bright and lively flavour.
Chateau Musar Red Gaston Hochar, Bekaa Valley, 2007
A real fruity number with elements of blackberry, red cherries and pomegranate.
Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Privada, Torreon de Paredes, Cachapoal
It has a rich ruby red colour with dark blue hues, and the taste has a well balanced finish.
Chateau Cissac, Haut Medoc, Cru Bourgeois
Delicious blackcurrant notes combined with a long finish make this an ideal choice.
Cote de Nuits Villages, Louis Latour
Bursts of red and black cherry fruits paired with notes of liquorice make the perfect combination.
