If you’re looking for that perfect wine to compliment your Easter menu’s, then these Easter wine suggestions from Templeton Direct will set you in the right direction.
Easter is almost here and families everywhere will be gathering around the dinner table to feast with friends and loved ones as they make the most of the first Bank Holiday of the year when many people enjoy not one but two days off work on Good Friday and Easter Monday.
If you are one of the many people who have given up wine for lent then this is the ideal time to search our website for the perfect pairing for your Easter feast.
Traditional Easter menus tend to centre around either a roasted ham, leg of lamb, chicken or turkey….begging the question, “Which wine goes best with what? Here are our recommendations hand picked by the Templeton Direct sales team.
Roast Lamb is strong in flavour and therefore supports full bodied red wines. Try our Louis Felipe Edwards Cabernet Sauvignon or if you want to spoil everyone our Veramonte Reserva is a firm favourite.
Ham dishes are usually sweet to balance out the saltiness of the meat therefore the wine needs enough sweet fruit and acidity to balance this. We would recommend our Callia Malbec and most definitely one of our best sellers by far is the Dashwood Pinot Noir. www.templetondirect.co.uk/red-wines
If you opt for chicken or turkey we would suggest a chardonnay. Our Australian Berri Estate un-oaked chardonnay would be perfect. www.templetondirect.co.uk/white-wines
