Easter treats

I hope you’re prepared to demolish those chocolate eggs tomorrow but before that, if you’re thinking about what to pair with your spring roast lamb, here are some perfect wine options for you to choose from.

Sainsbury’s have some great offers on wine at the moment, with various bottles available as part of their two for £12 promotion. A glass of Montpierre Reserve Sauvignon Blanc would be ideal alongside a delicate fish starter on Easter Sunday. With mellow citrus flavours, a light fresh aroma, and a well-rounded finish, it would also partner well with some of BBC Good Food’s latest spring dishes, such as this melon, prawn and avocado salad followed by a big bowl of creamy pea and watercress pasta.

For a white to accompany the varied flavours of your roast lamb with all the trimmings, try Sainsbury’s Languedoc White Wine. With a rich floral nose and luscious peach and mineral flavours, this creamy white is perfect for a bit of luxury this bank holiday weekend.

If you prefer red wine, Cono Sur Pinot Noir 2011 is available for just £5.49 from Tesco until 30th April.  This well-balanced and food-friendly Chilean Pinot Noir is full of ripe cherries with a spicy kick. If the sun is out, try it lightly chilled alongside your Sunday lunch.

Happy Easter all – I’m off to watch to watch The Boat Race with that chilled Pinot!
