Epicureans amongst us rejoice – it’s Easter! The first English holiday of the calendar year is here – finally!
The days are getting longer, the sun is more powerful and signs of colour are returning to nature. We have suffered the long, dark winter and rewards are long overdue.
For many of us, Easter is best shared with those closest to us, and what with all the worrying about where the extra chairs have got to, and whether Grandma and Uncle can be trusted not to argue, we understand that the matter of what to drink can become a mind-boggling additional hassle.
If, like many, you’re looking for the perfect wine to accompany your roast lamb this Easter, then look no further than the 2011 Bodegas Perica 6cepas6 Rioja.
Because of its high fat content, Lamb needs a balanced, refreshing wine to cut through and allow this Spring favourite to shine. It finds its natural companion in the fashionable Tempranillo grape, making lamb the perfect partner in crime to this fruity, spicy style of red for only £20.99.
What would Easter be without chocolate? To finish off your Easter Sunday feast there’s nothing better than to indulge yourself on one of the many Easter eggs lying around the house. But for us grown-ups, there’s extra enjoyment to be found in discovering the magic of wine and chocolate pairing.
Many say that wine and chocolate is an impossible marriage, but clearly they are yet to try the critically acclaimed sweet Maury’s of Southern France. Our perfect companion for a spot of light indulgence would be the delectable Mas Amiel Maury Vintage Maury 2012. You can thank us later.

Have a very happy Easter!
