Spring is in the air, so get set for a fabulous season of flavour-packed and fun alfresco dining opportunities.

There’s no better time to shake off those winter layers and enjoy lunch in the warming sun, so we’ve come up with 12 of our favourite spring recipes and wine matches to help you make a season full of delicious moments and memories.

From the classics of a roast chicken recipe and Chardonnay to a rich washed rind cheese custard with Chenin Blanc, we’ve got the perfect food and wine matches to make your spring truly special.

 

SPRING CHICKEN AND GRAPEFRUIT

Chardonnay is always a great choice with poultry dishes, and the flavoursome yet elegant Tinklers Hill Chardonnay 2020 is ideal with this spring chicken dish.

 

LYNDEY MILAN'S INDIVIDUAL PUMPKIN, LEEK AND SPINACH FRITTATA

A flexible all-rounder, the silken Sevenhill Inigo Pinot Gris 2021 compliments this antipasto-ready dish very well.

 

BEEF CHEEKS IN BAHARAT SPICE WITH ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS AND SOFT POLENTA

Shiraz has a well-deserved reputation for its ability to harmonise with spicy dishes, as the delicious cool climate Forest Hill Vineyard Highbury Fields Shiraz 2019 shows.

 

FENNEL, ASPARAGUS AND CHEESE RISOTTO

Classic White Blends like the Voyager Estate Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2020 pair perfectly with dishes containing cheese and green vegetables, making this a harmonious match.

 

ROAST CHICKEN WITH PARSNIP MASH, ASPARAGUS AND A CHERRY-GINGER GLAZE APRICOT AND MIXED BERRY PUDDING

Well known for its apricot and ginger characters, Viognier is a natural choice with this sweet yet savoury dish. The Artwine Madame V Viognier 2019 is a perfect match.

 

WASHED RIND CHEESE CUSTARD, RHUBARB AND SESAME PRALINE

Botrytis Semillon has the sweetness and the acidity to contrast the savoury flavours and creamy texture of rich desserts such as this Allegiance Wines Sweet Betty 375ml Botrytis Semillon 2018, which is a great choice to enjoy with this indulgent dessert.

 

BLUE SWIMMER CRAB SPAGHETTINI WITH LEMON AND CHIVE SAUCE AND GARLIC PANGRATTATO

This is a delicate and refined dish, making a fine cool climate Riesling like the Z Wine Mae Riesling 2021 from Tasmania, a natural partner.

 

LYNDEY MILAN'S DUCK BREAST WITH PORT AND ORANGE SAUCE ON CELERIAC PURÉE WITH PETIT POIS Á LA FRANÇAISE

The combination of Pinot Noir and duck is one of the classics, and the Tread Softly Pinot Noir 2020 paired with Lyndey Mlian’s duck breast with port and orange sauce is no exception to that rule.

 

LYNDEY MILAN'S SPICED CHICKEN WITH BLOOD ORANGE AND DATE SALAD

Being an Italian variety, Sangiovese lends itself perfectly to Mediterranean-inspired dishes like this warm salad – the Watkins Ruscello Sangiovese 2020 works a treat.

 

KINGFISH WITH SALSA VERDE, WHITE BEAN PURÉE AND FENNEL SALAD

Vermentino is a textural variety that displays classic salty or sea spray characters, making it ideal with simply-prepared seafood. Try the Alejandro Vermentino 2020 with this kingfish dish for a super-delicious pairing.

 

LYNDEY MILAN'S BURRATA SPRING SALAD

Savarro, or Savagnin, is an Italian variety, making it a natural choice with this dish featuring one of Italy’s top cheeses. So delicious served with the Allinda Alba Toro Savagnin 2018.

 

LYNDEY MILAN'S AVOCADO SPRING SALAD

Montevecchio Bianco Field Blend 2020 is a vibrant ‘field blend’ leading with Vermentino and Fiano which harmonises beautifully with the fresh flavours in this dish.
