Wines to match Easter Eggs and Hot Cross Buns

Hot Cross Buns and Easter eggs are in full swing at the supermarkets, school holidays are almost upon us, we’re thinking about time off and of beautiful seafood dinners. Yep, it’s Easter time again.

Have you started your Easter shopping? Research shows 48% of Australians spend up to $50 on Easter eggs. At Midday Somewhere, we reckon why not halve the price you spend on eggs and get a bottle of wine instead? And if you match the wine to work well with your eggs, you’re in for a real treat.

Here are the best deals we’ve found to go with your chocolate and other Easter goodies. Enjoy!

Hot Cross Buns

For those hot cross bun fans, why not match your buns with something like Marsala, a Muscat or Pedro Ximenez Sherry? The richness of these drinks will work well with the cinnamon and spice and all things nice in your hot cross bun. Try:

Dark Chocolate

If you’re a Dark Chocolate Easter egg fan then match these with a full-bodied Shiraz or Cabernet; or for something with a little more pizzazz, why not try a Sparkling Shiraz?

Milk Chocolate

Milk Chocolate Easter eggs work well with a softer red, so you could try a Pinot Noir, Merlot or Grenache.

White Chocolate

And how about a sparkling Moscato with your White Chocolate?

So, whatever you’re eating this Easter, be sure to match it with a little vino.
