Easter Sunday is but ten short days away, and if you haven't already assembled your guest list and decided on your dinner menu for the day, then now is the time! Perhaps you will be serving a traditional leg of lamb or roasted ham and are wondering what crowd-pleasing wine to pair with your meal. To find the perfect wine to compliment your special Easter meal, come to Airport Liquors on Airport Road in Warwick.
Ham is often topped with a sweet glaze that highlights the inherent saltiness of the meat, and so finding a wine that can achieve that same delicate balance between salty and sweet can make a world of difference. A "tried and true" wine selection is a Reisling which lends a fresh, flavorful taste profile to the ham with just enough sweet fruit and just enough acidity.
For your lamb, whether you are serving a rack, leg, or an entire roast, the best bet is to stick with your well-grounded red wines, such as a Cabernet Sauvignon or red Burgundy. The goal is to have a wine with enough fruit and acidity to handle the robust flavors of your lamb without overpowering it in the process.
Whatever you are serving for your Easter meal, plan a visit to Airport Liquors. The champagne and sparkling wine offerings at Airport Liquors are plentiful, diverse and most importantly, affordable. There is something here to satisfy every discerning taste.
