Essential Easter Chocolate Egg And Wine Pairings

Easter is synonymous with vibrant celebrations, joyous gatherings, and the sweet delight of chocolate eggs. This year, take your Easter experience to new heights by discovering the perfect harmony between delectable chocolate treats and exquisite wines. We explore the essential Easter egg and chocolate wine pairings that will make your festivities even more memorable.

Milk Chocolate Eggs And Moscato:
Start your tasting journey with the classic sweetness of milk chocolate eggs. The smooth, creamy texture pairs exceptionally well with a light and effervescent moscato. The gentle fizz and fruity notes of moscato enhance the indulgent sweetness of milk chocolate, creating a delightful and refreshing combination.

One of our favourites is the Ceretto Moscato D'Asti

Dark Chocolate Eggs And Cabernet Sauvignon:
Delve into the rich, bittersweet world of dark chocolate eggs with a bold and robust cabernet sauvignon. The intense flavours of dark chocolate find a perfect companion in the deep, fruity, and sometimes spicy notes of cabernet sauvignon. This pairing promises a symphony of complexity and indulgence.

White Chocolate Eggs And Riesling:
Embrace the delicate sweetness of white chocolate eggs by accompanying them with a crisp and aromatic riesling. The floral and citrusy characteristics of riesling complement the subtle sweetness of white chocolate, creating a refreshing and harmonious pairing that's perfect for springtime celebrations.

Try Terry's chocolate orange Easter egg with Riesling. The 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 J Lohr Bay Mist Riesling which will match beautifully!

Caramel Filled Eggs And Sherry:
Elevate the experience with caramel filled eggs paired with a luscious sherry. The nutty and caramel notes in sherry enhance the gooey sweetness of caramel filled eggs, creating a luxurious and decadent combination that's sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Cadbury Creme Eggs And 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 egg that we all love complements an oaky chardonnay perfectly!

Lindt Chocolate Bunny And Sparkling Wine
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 a bottle of bubbly. The tannin makes best friends with the richness, while the fizz lifts the residue of the palate.

Now our pick for the perfect sparkling wine is Castle Brook classic cuvee English sparkling wine.

If you're looking for a little extra indulgent treat whilst the children are finishing their last few eggs why not try boozy chocolate bunny shots!

Is your mouth watering yet? It sounds like a complete dream. Dessert inside of a dessert!

Fruit Filled Eggs And Sparkling Rose:
If your Easter basket is filled with fruit filled chocolates, opt for a sparkling rose. The effervescence and fruity profile of rose wines elevate the vibrant flavours of fruit-filled chocolates, resulting in a playful and refreshing pairing.

Tips For A Successful Pairing:

  • Temperature Matters: Ensure your wines are served at the appropriate temperature to bring out their full flavour potential
  • Experiment With Combinations: Create a tasting experience by offering an array of chocolate eggs and wines, encouraging guests to explore different pairings.

This Easter, transform your traditional chocolate egg experience into a sophisticated celebration by exploring these essential pairings. Whether you prefer the classic duo of milk chocolate and moscato or the bold combination of dark chocolate and cabernet sauvignon, these pairings promise to elevate your Easter festivities with a symphony of flavours.

Cheers to a season filled with joy, indulgence, and the perfect union of chocolate eggs and exquisite wines! Happy Easter.
