An Easter feast with family and friends

Easter is a great time to gather together your friends and family, to enjoy the best food and wines.


Our Cabernet Sauvignon has flavours that follow the nose with sweet spice at the edge, where vanilla leads the way. It all comes together with a long, smooth and ripe fruited finish. It’s the perfect option to pair with a special Easter Sunday lamb roast.

We have the perfect roast lamb recipe to try here:

1 leg of lamb, bone
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
8 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper
Sauce:
1 cup chopped fresh herbs (combination of rosemary, chives, and parsley)
2 cups diced onions
2 cups chicken stock
1 cup red wine
Directions
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Using your hands, rub the lamb all over with the lemon juice. Pat the garlic and rosemary evenly all over the surface of the meat. Season the meat with the salt and pepper and place the lamb in a roasting pan. Place the lamb in the oven and roast for 30 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 180 degrees and continue to cook for about 1 hour longer for medium-rare. Remove lamb from the pan and allow to rest for 10 to 15 minutes before carving.

Position the roasting pan over your stove burners. Add mixed herbs and onions to pan, and stir to combine with pan drippings. Add chicken stock and wine to deglaze the pan, scraping the bottom with a wooden spoon to release any fond. Reduce over high heat until sauce consistency. Strain before serving, if desired. Slice lamb and serve with sauce drizzled over the top.
