Wines for Easter

Hunting for some fabulous wine for your festivities this Easter? Whatever Easter celebration you enjoy — we’ve got a wine for it! We’ve pulled together seven helpful pairing suggestions:

  • Pineapple Glazed Ham: perfect with our 2019 Pinot Noir – scored 92 points from Niagara based wine critic Rick VanSickle, who stated “It has wonderful silkiness on the palate, fine-grained tannins and plenty of juicy acidity to keep it vibrant on the finish…”
  • Roast Lamb: superb with our 2018 Syrah – scored 92 points by Rick VanSickle, who commented “It’s supple on the palate with enticing savoury spices and a long, finessed finish.”
  • fresh fish on Good Friday like a Caribbean Matoutou Crab or a baked B.C. wild Salmon: our 2018 Chardonnay – scored 90 points by wine writer John Schreiner who noted “very balanced wine showcasing the citrus and peach aromas and flavours, with notes of vanilla and butter…”
  • an Italian Torta Pasqualina: splendid with our 2019 Sauvignon Blanc – scored 90 points by John Schreiner, who commented “flavours of passionfruit. The finish is crisp and zesty…”
  • a hearty soup like Fanesca or German Chervil: awesome with our aromatic 2019 Viognier – just scored 91 points by wine critic Daenna Van Mulligen who wrote, “Perfumed, potent, pristine. A lovely wine with precision…”
  • a sweet bread such as Capirotada, Tsoureki or Hot Cross Buns: sublime with our 2019 7 Blanc – recently scored 90 points by the Wine Diva, who described it as “Pristine, floral, ambrosial. The finish is lengthy with a nice burst of acidity to clean the palate…”
  •  Or for an apéritif or with dessert: our sparkling 2017 seven stars Polaris – highly awarded with seven 90+ scores from wine critics across the country. This past week, wine and food writer for Western Living Magazine, Neal McLennan wrote about Polaris, “a wonderful elegant crispness. It’s a lively, vibrant wine. Above all, it has an elegance that’s incongruous with its (low) $36 price point…”
