Our Top 5 Australia Day Recipe and Wine Matching Ideas

Celebrate Australian wine this year on our national holiday with these great recipe and wine matching ideas from Selector.

Lamb Recipes

Lamb has become synonymous with Australia Day celebrations (due in no small part to a certain successful advertising campaign). This boneless leg of lamb with a rosemary rub recipe is the perfect way to add a refined touch to your Australia Day celebrations. The oak, spice and firm tanins of a fine Coonawarra or Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon make this variety the classic wine match for a rich lamb dish like this . Alternatively, try one of the increasing range of alternative varieties such as Montepulciano or Petit Verdot. Find out more about Petit Verdot in our recent infographic guide

Lamb wine match: Bundaleer Montepulciano 2015 or the Credaro Five Tales Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Prawn Recipes

In this country, we are blessed with an abundance of quality seafood. This Barbecue split prawns with chilli, oregano and olive oil recipe is an excellent addition to any Australia Day get together. For the perfect wine match, go for a dry white with good acidity such as a fine Semillon , Vermentino or Verdelho.

Prawns wine match: Krinklewood Biodynamic Vineyard Semillon 2009 or the Tulloch Vineyard Selection Verdelho 2015

Vegetarian Recipes

It doesn’t have to be all about lamb and meat on Australia Day as this tongue in cheek video reminds us. Maggie Beer’s beetroot and vino cotto salad recipe is the perfect accompaniment to any celebratory bbq or potluck dinner. Or, for something more substantial try Stefano Manfredi’s spectacular potato gnocchi with burnt butter and sage . For further inspiration look through the many vegetable focused dishes in our recipe section or consult our vegetarian wine matching guide .

Vegetarian wine match: Howard Park Riesling 2013 or the Soumah Savarro (Savagnin) 2012

Kangaroo Recipes

Lyndey Milan’s Kangaroo with native spices, beetroot and rosella sauce recipe is outstanding and exquisitely showcases the uniquely Australian ingredients involved. This dish is an impeccable match for a refined, elegant cool climate Shiraz from the Yarra Valley or a savoury Hunter Valley Shiraz.

Kangaroo wine match: Richard Hamilton Little Road Shiraz 2015 or the Seville Estate The Barber Shiraz 2015

Pavlova Recipes

Although our friends in New Zealand quite confidently claim ownership (and they might be right ), there's no question that pavlova is also a strong part of our national culinary history. Complete your Australia Day celebrations with Lyndey Milan’s easy-to-follow Festive Pavlova recipe . Arguably, a dessert wine is a great match to Pavlova. But, you can keep the festivities flowing with refined Tasmanian Sparkling or a fruit focused and refreshing Prosecco from the King Valley . Find out more about Australian Prosecco in this recent article .

Pavlova wine match: Tamar Ridge Cuvée Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir NV or the Chrismont La Zona Sparkling Prosecco NV

What grows together, goes together Landfall Beef and Josef Chromy Wines
Words by Paul Diamond on 3 Aug 2017
We travel to Tasmania to lunch with Launceston neighbours Landfall Beef and Josef Chromy Wines and discover the old adage of what grows together, goes together is still very relevant. Long before we started digging things out of the ground, our economic prosperity as ‘The Lucky Country’, came from agriculture, livestock in particular. From the mid 1800s and for most of the 1900s, we were literally ‘riding on the sheep’s back’ as we matured and developed into what we are today. Our identity, what we eat, drink and appreciate, comes from this industry and to help celebrate what is recognised as the best produce in the world, Selector has partnered with Australian Beef & Lamb to bring you the stories of some selected producers across the country. Each article will be based in one of our great wine regions and feature a prominent wine producer meeting a livestock producer over lunch and a glass of wine. By sharing the fruits of these agricultural pursuits, we hope you gain a greater appreciation of the best food and wine we produce and the regions that bind them together. We start our series in Tasmania’s Tamar Valley with the Archer family, renowned for their lamb production, and Josef Chromy OAM, who, after developing some of Tasmania’s most significant wineries, established his own at the age of 76. The Archer Family
The Archer family have been farming their property, ‘Landfall’, in Northern Tasmania’s Tamar Valley for five generations. Arriving in 1876, brothers Gerald and Hedly Archer started cropping and raising livestock. The other five Archer brothers moved to Queensland to farm and their heirs, like their Tasmanian cousins, have remained on the land, raising their families and livestock. Today, the Tasmanian Archers specialise in prime lamb. Their lives are intimately connected to the Tamar Valley, their property, their animals and as the sixth generation of Archers grow up, they will learn and understand the true meaning of paddock to plate; breeding, birthing, raising, selling and marketing their animals. The Archers know the value of their labour and have opened Landfall Farm Fresh , a direct-to-customer butcher shop in Launceston that allows customers to appreciate the highest quality lamb that is raised just minutes from the shop. Pastoral Connections
Over a special lunch of Landfall lamb neck with potato & olive oil purée, glazed artichokes, sheep milk curd and almonds, and slow-cooked Landfall lamb shoulder with perfect sauce, salt-baked celeriac, winter greens and radicchio salad, especially prepared by chef, Nick Raitt, fifth generation Archers, Ellie and Ed, got to share their produce, connect and get to know  another Tamar agri-producer in Josef Chromy. Over a glass of Josef’s exquisite Pinot Noir , crafted by chief winemaker, Jeremy Dineen, the Archers discovered that they had more in common with Josef than just the land they share. Josef ‘Joe’ Chromy escaped his Nazi controlled Czech village and fled across borders, dodging soldiers, dogs and minefields, before eventually emigrating to Australia as a destitute 19-year-old.  Joe found hope in Tasmania, became a Master Butcher and started a business called Blue Ribbon Meat Products, building his business over 40 years to become a leading Tasmanian brand. Joe floated Blue Ribbon and invested in Tasmania’s fledgling wine industry, developing the now iconic labels Jansz, Heemskerk, Rochecombe (Bay of Fires) and Tamar Ridge. In 2007, he started Josef Chromy Wines and has developed the business significantly to become recognised internationally as one of Tasmania’s leading producers and the region’s most impressive cellar door and restaurant. Kitchen Royalty
Nick Raitt, head chef at the Josef Chromy Wines Restaurant , has some pedigree of his own, having cooked at Level 41, Otto and Coast and has even cooked for the royals of Oman and a laundry list of other royals and world leaders. To match colleague Jeremy Dineen’s spectacular Chardonnay and Pinot Noir , Nick was keen to work with secondary cuts to show the Archers what was possible with their product. He chose neck and shoulder, which are highly accessible and inexpensive cuts with plenty of flavour potential. The Archers were quietly impressed, and as they were able to gain a further appreciation of their products, they got to share their stories, enjoy Joe and Jeremy’s delicious wines and develop a further appreciation for the amazing place that connects them all.
