Why This Wine: Roast lamb is a bold dish and requires an equally rich and well-structured wine. The juicy plum, black cherry and fresh herb notes of this wine support the smokey flavor of the meat, especially with crushed garlic, chopped rosemary and fresh mint.
Why This Wine: I've been enjoying this wine for years. The complex, delicious flavours, incredible mouth-feel and great taste make it a perfect match with any lamb dish. This wine is for those looking for an exceptional wine at a bargain price! Give it a try and see for yourself.
Why This Wine: This delicious, warm weather, unoaked, Shiraz-Grenache blend with complex aromas isn't normally found in this price range ($17.95). Nicely balanced ripe raspberries, dark fruits, gaminess and soft tannins, with some vanilla and spice to match meaty dishes such as grilled lamb chops.
Why This Wine: This full-bodied red blend has a compelling deep ruby colour and the dark berries hold solid on the palate. It makes a great parallel match for lamb as there's an underlying savouriness that supports the spices and gamey flavours of the meat.
Why This Wine: This was my first zinfandel that I tried years ago and I still love it. Full-flavored, with deep purple plum and jam flavours. It goes well with red meat, especially BBQ or roasted lamb. It's full-bodied and delicious, but not heavy.
