Our Favourite Easter Food and Wine Pairings


No matter what's on your Easter menu, we have a wine to match.
From the traditional to the unexpected.

 

To make it easy, take advantage of our Easter Favourites 6-bottle pack. Every pack includes a complimentary bottle of The White Chardonnay.

 

Petiyante Sparkling and Brunch

To make an occasion of an Easter brunch with friends, serve our sparkling Chardonnay/Pinot Noir, Petiyante with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon - such a luxurious pairing. The creaminess of the eggs and the smoky flavour of the salmon complement the super fine bead, crispness & texture of the Petiyante. 

Easter The Rose and Good Friday Seafood

The Rose is our elegant, delicate, dry Provence-style Rose.  On the nose it offers sherbet, fresh berries, honeydew, and rock melon.  On the palate, there's strawberries & cream, peach notes and a light leesy grip adding complexity before a clean finish with hints of acidity.  A perfect accompaniment to the sweetness of prawns and rich fish like Atlantic salmon.

Easter Chardonnay and Roast Chicken

In a contemporary Australian style, made to demonstrate Chardonnay's elegant varietal character. The White has slightly toasty with flavours of peach, nectarine, melon and toasted nuts. The fruit sweetness is offset by steely, refreshing acidity and a long finish.  It has just the right amount of texture to match a moist roast chicken.

Easter Bark Hut Road and Roast Lamb

The richness and texture of Easter roast lamb needs the rich fruit flavour, savoury notes and fine, firm tannin structure of Shiraz and Cabernet Franc. Bark Hut Road is our elegant Bordeaux-style blend, offering vanilla, plums, violets, capsicum & spice with hints of French oak on the nose.  On the palate, a soft texture with round, medium-body, blackberry &  sarsaparilla notes at the darker end of the fruit spectrum & Oak notes – vanilla and coconut. The finish is firmly structured with natural acidity & sweet tannins.

Old Rowley and Dark Chocolate

Our Cotes du Rhone style Shiraz/Grenache blend has spicy, earthy aromas supported by notes of confection from carbonic maceration.  The palate is robust but still delicate on the front palate. Full flavoured with supple raspberry & boysenberry flavours, lifted florals, vanilla oak & clove notes. Natural acidity supports a long finish, increasing the richness and length of flavours.  The fruit character and balanced tannins match beautifully with bitter dark chocolate.

The Red Shiraz and BBQ

When you're firing up the BBQ, you want a wine that goes with everything from sausages to vegetables. The Red 2021 is all elegant cool-climate Shiraz. On the nose, there's notes of pepper, eucalyptus and toasted vanilla.  On the palate it's seriously tasty with flavours in the mulberry and red fruit spectrum, a hint of charry oak and slightly gamey notes working beautifully with the fleshy fruit.  It has a generous round mouthfeel leading to a lingering finish.
