Our Favourite Easter Wine Pairings
Easter Wine Pairings Roast Lamb image

We recommend: RIOJA

Rioja is a great wine pairing for roast lamb.
This wine is usually made from the Tempranillo grape, which is the most widely planted grape variety in Spain but more contemporary Rioja’s can contain Graciano or Grenache.

Tasting Note
It has a deep red colour with aromas of blackberry, plum, and vanilla. On the palate, it’s rich and full-bodied with a long finish. The tannins in the wine are balanced by the acidity, which makes it a great pairing for the rich and flavourful meat of roast lamb.



We recommend: CHARDONNAY

If you’re serving roast chicken for your Easter dinner, a buttery Chardonnay is the perfect wine pairing. Chardonnay is a white grape variety that’s grown all over the world, but it’s most famously associated with the Burgundy region of France.

Tasting Note
A buttery Chardonnay has a full-bodied and creamy texture with flavours of tropical fruit, vanilla, and butter. This wine is a great complement to the juicy and tender meat of roast chicken.




Salmon is a popular choice for Easter dinner, and a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect wine pairing. Sauvignon Blanc is a white grape variety that’s known for its crisp acidity and bright fruit flavours.

Tasting Note
New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs are especially famous for their intense grapefruit and passionfruit aromas. This wine is a great match for the delicate flavour and rich texture of salmon.



We recommend: PINOT NOIR

Nut roast is a vegetarian alternative to traditional Easter meats, and it’s a dish that pairs well with red wine. There are many different grape varieties that can be used to make red wine, but a good choice for nut roast would be a medium-bodied wine like Pinot Noir or a red blend.

Tasting Note
Pinot Noir is a light red wine with delicate flavours of red fruit and earthy undertones. It’s a great match for the nutty and savoury flavours of nut roast.

Easter Wine Pairings

In conclusion, there are many great wine pairings for Easter dinner. Whether you’re serving roast lamb, roast chicken, salmon, or nut roast, there’s a wine that will perfectly complement the flavours of your meal. Consider trying a Rioja with roast lamb, a buttery Chardonnay with roast chicken, a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with salmon, or a Pinot Noir with nut roast.

Cheers to a delicious and festive Easter dinner!
