One of the classic Easter dishes is ham. Most hams are wet-cured with brine or saline solution and then smoked.

Popular finishes are a sweet glaze of bourbon and brown sugar or maple syrup or orange marmalade. This gives the meat a glistening finish and an appetizing salty-sweet taste.

The other Easter classic, roasted or grilled lamb, is one of the easiest foods to pair with wine. Juicier in texture than turkey, milder in flavor than beef, the classic match for its savory flavors are the cabernet sauvignon blends of Bordeaux.  But many dry and robust reds will also work, such as Spanish rioja and Rhône Valley syrah blends.

Zonte's Footstep Baron Von Nemesis Single Site Shiraz 2010
Barossa Valley, South Australia, Australia

Natalie's Score: 90/100

Fantastic for the price! Full-bodied and juicy with layers of mouth-watering flavours: blackberry pie and black plums. This wine is produced by Baron Von Nemesis in the heart of the Barossa Valley. Smooth and terrific. Loaded with toasty oak. Great party wine. Decant 2 hours. Shiraz food pairings: grilled meats and vegetables, stew, pizza, grilled or spice-rubbed chicken, fajitas.

Tasting notes, score, price and recipe matches at the link above. Cheers, Natalie

June's Vineyard Riesling 2011
Creek Shores, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
 
Natalie's Score: 92/100

Mouth-watering acidity that demands and dances with food in this zesty white wine. This V.Q.A. wine is lime essence wrapped in lemon zest. Pure, unadulterated citrus sunbeams. Racy finish. Great price. Riesling food pairings: grilled tuna steaks, lemon pepper chicken, mildly spicy gourmet sausages, soft cheese, spicy food.
