Along with many annual traditions we usually enjoy surrounded by friends and family, your Easter celebrations may differ somewhat this year. Dinner may be limited to immediate family and the chocolate egg hunt may be restricted to your garden, but that doesn’t mean Easter can’t be just as good as it always is.

One thing that should amend yearly though, is your Easter wine list. Of course, creating the perfect Easter menu is highly dependent on your on your food choices, but whether you’re planning to tuck into a meal of chicken, lamb or a non-meat alternative, we have a list of amazing wines that will pair perfectly with this year’s Easter celebrations, no matter how subdued.

Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 

If roast beef or lamb is your meat of choice this Easter, then look no further than this pure and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon from Excelsior. Uncomplicated with notes of deep black fruits such as plums, blackberries and black cherries, this oaky wine balances well alongside a homecooked roast.

Robertson Winery Pinot Noir 2017 

Another for the meat lovers, this Pinot Noir from Robertson Winery is the perfect accompaniment to an Easter dinner centering around veal or game meat. A light Pinot, featuring fruity aromas of youthful strawberries and rich, red cherries, this wine perfectly complements a more smoky and earthy meal.

Vergelegen Premium Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2012 

This flexible wine is ideal for those enjoying a slightly less traditional Easter meal such as risotto or pasta. With an intense cinnamon nose followed by cedarwood undertones, this combination red pairs smoothly and elegantly with almost all dishes.

An ideal pairing for fish-based or vegetarian dishes, Graham Beck’s Brut Rose offers elegant, floral tones resulting in a clean and fresh finish. Adding a touch of sparkle to your Easter feast, this light fizz benefits from the perfect balance of sweet strawberries and sour limes.
