Five reds to pair with Irish spring lamb this Easter
Our wine expert chooses some eclectic styles that are a great match for different types of lamb dishes
Spring lamb season has sprung, and this weekend roast lamb will take pride of place in many Easter feasts, as is tradition from Eastern Europe down to Italy and Greece and more recently in Ireland too. Even when it falls late, Easter heralds the start of lamb season rather than its peak, as we can see from the many young lambs still in our fields. Of all meats, lamb’s flavour evolves throughout that season, from mild and sweet to more robust as the animal ages.
