2 months ago

With Easter falling on April 1st this year, we picked out some of our favourite wines that will help make the day more special. Share with friends and family or have it by yourself. Create a hamper or wrap a red ribbon around it to add that extra touch for the perfect Easter gift.

  1. Cabernet Sauvignon

If you or the host loves a glass of red wine every now and then, Cabernet Sauvignon, is the safest and boldest choice to go for. This dry red wine is the ideal starter for an Easter dinner as its deep red notes of black currant and black cherry will go perfectly well for whatever roast or meat stew that’s served on the table.

  • Cono Sur Bicicleta Cabernet Sauvignon

Grown in the valleys of Chile, Cono Sur Bicicleta Cabernet Sauvignon is great to pair with pastas, red meats and other grilled items. The wine is a bright rub red with distinct aromas of berries, chocolate and plums. Cono Sur Bicicleta Cabernet Sauvignon is a medium to full bodied red wine that’s budget friendly and tastes great.

  • Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon

This Australia red wine, slightly on the higher end of the pricing scale is dark red in colour and looks almost purple around the edges of the glass. With strong flavours of blackcurrant and cassis, the wine also has subtle hints of herbal and mint. A full bodied wine that’s bold and perfect for a gift.

2. Merlot

Think of Merlot as Cabernet Sauvignon’s younger cousin. The fruit flavours and balanced tastes are smoother and more prominent and are a safe bet for any occasion. This crowd favourite is loved by beginners and wine connoisseurs alike.

  • Millaman Condor Merlot

Millaman Condor Merlot is produced and grown in the lush Hacinda El Condor vineyards of Central Valley in Chile.

  • Tall Horse Merlot

Produced in South Africa, Tall Horse Merlot is a rich ruby coloured wine with aromas of ripe forest berries and spice. A bottle of merlot from Tall Horse is the perfect bottle if you’re stuck at home with no plans for Easter, make sure you make a good meal to accompany it!

3. Sauvignon Blanc

If you or your host is lover of white wines, opt for a bottle of crisp Sauivgnon Blanc. Originated from the Loire Valley of France, Sauvignon directly translates to “wild” and is known to be at least 500 years old.

This crisp dry white wine stems from New Zealand and offers distinct flavours of ripe fruits such as passion fruit and goose berry. Its colour is pale-straw and is ideal to eat with seafood and salads.

4. Chardonnay

If you like light white wines with fruity floral undertones, then Chardonnay will definitely add to the celebration. Common fruits are pineapple, yellow apple, mango, pear and citrus peel.

  • Bouchard Aine & Fils Macon Villages Chardonnay

It’s the perfect way to start your Easter celebrations, especially if its prior to dinner. The wine goes well with finger foods such as crackers, peanuts and olives.
