Wines for Easter?
Traditional Easter foods usually focus on ham or lamb for the main course. Ham often has a sweet pineapple glaze and of course, is a salty meat. Typically, the best campanion to "sweet and salty" is a nice Riesling or a Gerwurztraminer, which tends to balance the ham with enough acidity and freshness. For a dry Riesling, we like Fino Vino. For the sweeter palate, try Mosel (semi sweet), Bauer Haus (med sweet) or Funf (sweet). If your taste runs toward the spicy Gerwurztraminer side, we love Watermill Winery (Dry), Baron De Hoen (med sweet) or Swallow (sweet). Chardonnay Lover? Lightly Oaked Chardonnays such as Felino, Creme De Lys or La Crema will satisfy the most ardent fan and will still be a good companion to ham. But what if you have friends and family who only want a red? Well, Zinfandel is the one to choose, with its fruit forward aroma that will handle ham's sweet taste. May we suggest: Peachy Canyon, The Immortal Zin or my favorite, Joel Gott. Why not try Prickly Frisk, with "little bubbles", but make sure you serve this fun wine chilled! Cheers!
