Essential Easter Egg and Wine Pairings
Easter baskets may be designed for children who wish to eat so much chocolate their teeth fall out – but that doesn’t mean us adults have to skip out on the fun. Sure, it might not be a stellar idea to eat our weight in chocolate bunnies; however, it’s pretty much socially acceptable to drink our weight in wine at this point.
Make eating your kids' Easter treats feel a tad more sophisticated with these tasty combinations.
Cadbury Creme Eggs & Chardonnay
Among the most popular sweet treats associated with Easter are fondant-filled Cadbury Creme Eggs, which first appeared back in 1923.The creamy gooey inside of a Cadbury Creme Eggs that we all love complements an oaky Chardonnay perfectly!
Te Mata Estate Chardonnay's palate unfurls with a balance of rock melon, sweet lemon, candied lime and complexing notes of biscuit, stone fruit and grilled nuts.
Green & Blacks Dark Chocolate Easter Egg & Port
The intense rich fruity nose of the Bin 27, interwoven with notes of spice, and a smooth, velvety texture with balanced, mouth-filling tannins and rich black fruit flavours makes this wine a perfect tipple this Easter. Enjoy it with a luxurious dark chocolate Easter Egg (the higher the cocoa content the better!), where the succulent fruity flavours of the Port perfectly complement the bitter notes of the chocolate. This Port is also amazing when enjoyed with a plate of rich chocolate brownies or creamy chocolate truffles...
Terry's Chocolate Orange Easter Egg & Riesling
Enticing notes of lychee, pear and orange are typical in Rieslings making it the ideal match for the sweet citrus profile of Terry's Chocolate Orange. We suggest a bottle of Wakefield Estate Riesling which will match beautifully!
Lindt Chocolate Bunny & Sparkling Shiraz
Now we all know the best part of Easter is taking the little bell and the golden wrapper off our personal favourite of all the Easter treats, the Lindt Bunny. Lindts creamy chocolate matches perfectly with the bubbly Shiraz. The tannin makes best friends with the richness, while the fizz lifts the residue off you palate. Now Our pick for the perfect sparkling wine is De Bortoli Woodfired Sparkling Shiraz
If you're looking for a little extra indulgent treat whilst the children finishing their last few eggs why not try boozy chocolate bunny shots!
All poured into a hollow, chocolate bunny broken in half, of course.
Is your mouth watering yet? It sounds like a complete dream. Dessert inside of a dessert!
