5 Fine Wines Perfect For Celebrating Easter

As Easter approaches, the hunt for the perfect wines to complement your celebrations is on! Whether you're hosting a lavish brunch, a delightful dinner, or simply enjoying the holiday with a few close friends, selecting the right wine is essential.

Typically, the table features lighter meats like honey-baked hams, roast chicken, lamb, spring vegetables, and mashed potatoes. If those are the plates you’ll be serving for brunch or lunch on Easter Sunday, finding the right bottle that will appeal to the season and palate can be tricky.

Whether you enjoy ham, lamb, or veg, here are our five picks for the best pairing and most appropriate for the Easter season!

SAND POINT ROSE

Celebrate not just Easter but the spring season by picking up something pink at Cork! This offers bright aromas of strawberry and raspberry with green apple and citrus. A delicate salmon-pink hue alludes to its juicy red fruit character, and a vibrant acidity and silky mouthfeel culminate in a crisp, clean, refreshing finish.

WILD GOOSE AUTUMN GOLD

If you want something bright and floral, the Wild Goose Autumn Gold is off-dry on the palate with intense fruit flavours - an aromatic blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Blanc with notes of mango, papaya, pineapple, baked golden apple, dried rose petal and honeysuckle notes along with ripe peach and savoury chamomile. To keep the tropical fruit presence in the wine, a touch of residual sweetness complements the bold flavours.

KEN FORRESTER THE FMC CHENIN BLANC

Grab a Ken Forrester The FMC Chenin Blanc bottle at Cork if you want something best paired with fish and cheese plates. This South African Chenin Blanc is highly sophisticated, with flavors of tropical fruit, citrus, and a hint of minerality are balanced by a crisp acidity, creating a wine with depth, complexity, and a long, lingering finish.

MARCEL LAPIERRE MORGON BEAUJOLAIS

If you want a red wine, the MARCEL LAPIERRE MORGON is a delightful pairing for Easter fare! This is the wine you should drink to truly experience the hallowed region of Beaujolais. This is no light and fruity red, but a dense, serious bottle ready to sweep you off your feet. Nobody’s wines taste like Marcel Lapierre’s. He is the source of a whole new school of winemaking, turning the hands of time back to wine the way Mother Nature envisioned it.

DOMAINE DE L'ENCLOS CHABLIS 1ER CRU VAU DE VEY

From one of the best Chablis 1er Cru sites, acacia blossom, honey, and butter tones waft over a rich palate of tree fruit. The texture is weighty and energized by the classic minerality of Chablis. With a hint of vanilla and fresh butter, this wine is mouth-filling and long-lasting on the finish. Grab a bottle at Cork to pair with ham, poultry, or shellfish.
