Anyone who has ever been on a wine tour will agree that sampling new wines can have all the excitement of a grown-up Easter egg hunt. Even if it takes some time, you will surely discover something wonderful.
Spring is the perfect time to try new wines as we celebrate the changing season and the joys of renewed hope. This Easter, we’ve done the searching for you and present some new wine online favourites to accompany your special celebration:
Whether grilled or roasted, lamb is traditionally prepared with understated seasonings to allow the meat’s delicate flavour to shine. The same should hold true for your choice of wine. When serving lamb, red is generally recommended and, in particular, should be a medium-bodied, fruity selection such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah. One of the best Ontario wines for pairing with lamb is the 2017 Proprietor’s Block Syrah. Aromatics of white pepper, black fruit and cigar box prevail on the nose. The palate is rich with jammy notes of strawberry and blackberry accented by spicy licorice, clove, leather and smoke. This wine enhances the meal without overpowering the main course.
When choosing a wine to serve with ham, be sure to choose a wine that will hold its own against the smoky and salty flavours of the meat. Cab Franc is a great choice, as is a fruity rosé; if you prefer a beautifully chilled white wine on your holiday table, try the from Ravine Vineyard.
A wine displaying harmony between alcohol, acidity, sweetness, and phenolics with rich, tropical, orchard fruit flavours is a match made in heaven for ham. Let this wine shine at your Easter dinner party.
Nothing is more indicative of ‘springtime’ than a feast of fresh veggies. From crisp greens to grilled kabobs to an array of meatless options, there are as many meatless meal options as there are wines to pair them with. This is a great time to try some aromatic vegan whites – so you’ll always have the best Ontario wines for every special celebration.
