My wine tips for Easter

There are many good reasons to serve a fine wine at Easter. Anyone who wants to celebrate this important festival in appropriate style will be keen to provide a first-class dinner with the right wine to complement it. Easter also generally marks the arrival of the first warm spring days, something that lifts the spirits and enhances enjoyment in equal measure. There is another important consideration too. Easter and wine have a long association. This finest of all drinks acquired sacred significance when Jesus declared it was his own blood at the Last Supper. Bread and wine still symbolize the promise of resurrection in Christian culture. This is why it is traditional to drink wine on Easter Sunday.
It is a custom that no one would wish to abolish. The only issue is which region the wine should come from. The choice obviously depends heavily on the type of food you are serving at Easter, but you should certainly choose something special for once. After all, Easter is as good an excuse for a celebration as any. Each month I choose an original and exclusive limited edition wine as my Edition Peter Keller. All are sourced entirely from reliable top producers in Switzerland and abroad. This month I will be suggesting two wines: a white to accompany your Good Friday fish and a red for your roast lamb on Easter Sunday.
The white wine comes from Germany – from Rheingau to be exact. Top producer Eva Fricke was elevated to the winemaking nobility last year when two of her 2019 Rieslings were awarded 100 points. One of them was this dry wine from the Lorcher Krone. I would recommend the 2017 to accompany fried saltwater fish, since it has already matured a little and has the complexity, power, structure and texture to make it the ideal match for such dishes. The Krone is a steep vineyard in the town of Lorch. Its vines, some of which are very old, grow in slate soil, which gives the wine a salty, mineral note.
