Easter food and wine pairings

Easter is a busy time of year in the winery, but for most Australians, it means an extra long weekend and a road trip to visit friends and family. 

We’re lucky to be hosting dear friends this Easter, hopefully Adam will be able to duck out of the winery for at least one meal!

What wine do you pair with your Easter feast? We’ve put together a few suggestions. 

Good Friday: Fish 

Fish is traditionally served on Good Friday. We love grilled fish (with a little seasoning – see below), especially Snapper or Barramundi. We often serve it with homemade fries, tartare sauce and some home grown lemon. 

While Chardonnay is frequently recommended as a pairing suggestion with fish, we enjoy our Grampians Viognier (textural with crispness, richness and body) or Nebbiolo Rosé (bright, savoury and textual).

Easter Sunday: Lamb 

We’re lucky, the Grampians is also lamb country! On Easter Sunday, we’ll be serving slow cooked local lamb shoulder with roast veggies, potato gratin (the richer the better!) and tomato and onion bake

Rich, structured wines work well with lamb as the tannin helps balance the fattiness of the meat. Our SubRosa Nebbiolo, Grampians Shiraz or Grampians Cabernet would pair beautifully. 

Enjoy making memories with those you love this Easter.
