Wines for Easter 2022
What does Easter mean for you? Time off work? Relaxed weekend brunch? Chocolate? Easter egg hunts? Roast lamb?
In Ireland, we have really great lamb. It has its own unique flavour profile – saovury, earthy, and often complemented with rosemary and/or garlic and plenty of crunchy sea-salt. Red wine is the colour of choice: Rioja, Bordeaux, and Chianti Classico, as well as Rhône blends of Grenache and Syrah (eg Côtes du Rhône), are all classic pairings.
If you are talented enough to be able to make a rich, fruity gravy, then you can choose a ripe fruity red from the New World to showcase your cooking skills.
Sancho Garces Rioja Crianza - This smooth, medium-bodied, velvety tasting wine is an all-round favourite for most foods, but really comes into its own with roast lamb. In fact, lamb is a specialty of the Rioja region. Ripe dark berry flavours, vanilla and sweet spices are a perfect counterpoint to the savoury taste of roast leg of lamb. Of all our Molloys Exclusive wines, this is a must-try! Still only €11.49
