We sat down with Mike to find out what wines he’ll be enjoying at the De Iuliis family Easter festivities:
Our 2022 Garden Vineyard Semillon is a classic Australian white wine that is perfect for pairing with light, fresh spring dishes. Its crisp acidity and citrus notes make it an ideal match for seafood, salads, and vegetables. Try serving it with a traditional Easter dish like grilled fish or a prawn cocktail for a refreshing and elegant pairing.
Our 2022 Special Release Pecorino is a light and refreshing white wine that originates from Italy’s Abruzzo region. This wine has a delicate aroma and a fruity, floral flavour profile that makes it a great match for lighter dishes such as grilled vegetables, seafood pasta, and chicken dishes. Pecorino is also a good match for fresh cheeses such as ricotta or goat cheese. If you’re planning to serve lighter dishes for your Easter feast, Pecorino is a great wine to consider.
Our 2022 Sparkling Rosé is a versatile wine that can be enjoyed on its own or paired with a wide variety of foods. Its effervescence and fruit-forward flavours make it a great match for cheese and charcuterie, light salads, and even roasted meats like ham or turkey. Serve it chilled and watch as it adds a festive touch to your Easter table.
Newly released our 2022 Special Release Sangiovese is a classic Italian red variety that is known for its bright fruit flavours and medium-bodied texture. It is an excellent choice for pairing with pasta dishes, grilled meats, and even pizza. Its acidity and tannins help to cut through the richness of these dishes, creating a balanced and delicious pairing that your guests will love.
Our 2022 Special Release Tempranillo is a Spanish red wine that is gaining popularity around the world. Its bold fruit flavours and rustic texture make it a great match for hearty meat dishes like lamb or beef. Its tannins and spice notes help to complement the rich flavours of these dishes, creating a pairing that is both satisfying and delicious.
Finally, our 2022 Special Release Pinot Noir is a classic red wine that is known for its delicate flavours and silky texture. It is a great choice for pairing with lighter meats like roasted chicken or pork loin. Its acidity and fruit flavours help to bring out the subtle flavours of these dishes, creating a pairing that is both elegant and satisfying.
