The Ultimate Sunday Roast Wines

Awards and Accolades

The Ultimate Sunday Roast Wines

There's nothing better than a perfect Sunday roast, the one meal of the week where you pull out all the stops and cook up a masterpiece. Such events deserve a really decent bottle of wine, red or white to complete the picture.

Here's the perfect wine case; 12 different wines, each selected to do your roast justice.

You can smell the roast chicken, crispy golden skin, tasty stuffing… it’ll be even better with 'The Dreamer' Viognier, Bradgate Chenin Blanc, or Cadet del Lauriga (if you’d prefer red).

Whatever your choice of cut, roast beef’s going to be super-succulent with the Bordeaux, and marvellous with the two Malbecs.

Roast lamb’s a special treat, made all the more so by the supple Chilean Carmenere, the Rioja Reserva (classic wine pairing for lamb) or the Tasmanian Pinot Noir.

Who could forget crisp crackling on that juicy pork? Here it’s the Casas del Bosque Pinot Noir, South African Merlot, or the peachy Portuguese Portada that’ll take centre stage.

Sunday roast: it's a British institution. A highlight of the week for many, it deserves the best wine you can choose too. Here you'll find wines that won't just go with your roast chicken, beef, lamb or pork, they'll make your Sunday lunch or dinner extra special. Top wines to make Sundays special.

Three generations of the Zuccardi family have presided over the company since it was founded by engineer Alberto Zuccardi in 1963. Planting vines in the Maipu province of Mendoza, Alberto was one of the first producers to experiment with irrigation systems. Fast forward fifty years and current owner Sebastián Zuccardi was awarded with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016 by the International Wine Challenge. Social and environmental responsibility is high on the agenda for this prominent company and initiatives include the protection of over 70 hectares of woodland and 1100 hectares where the native flora and fauna are protected.

The Producer

Finca Agostino is the story of four brothers: Vincenzo, Rosalia, Sebastian and Miguel Agostino, who lived their childhood in Mendoza before settling with their family in Canada in the sixties. The memory of Mendoza remained in their minds as the land of their childhood; a period of their lives shared with their grandfather Sebastiano. The estate farms vineyards in the Maipu and Uco Valleys, working in their own vineyards and with contract growers to produce their excellent wines.

The Producer

Family owned winery Casas del Bosque was founded in 1993 by Juan Cuneo Solari. The son of an Italian immigrant, he had always dreamed of having his own vineyard and chanced upon an area of the Casablanca Valley, 100k due west of Santiago, with its pine forests, olive groves and small, white abandoned adobe houses. He chose to name the winery Casas del Bosque, or “Houses of the Forest.” The winemaking team are evangelical about translating the character of the vineyard and grape in to the final wine, using longer than average skin contact to extract extra flavour from the grapes. Some vineyards are under organic management and the winery is currently beginning the process towards Wines of Chile Sustainability Certification, which is the first step on the way to organic certification.

Bodegas Navajas is a family run winery situated in the village of Navarrete, in the heart of the Rioja region. The bodega was founded in 1918 but it wasn’t until 1983 when the Navajas family finally took complete control of the winery which has seen a dramatic improvement in quality ever since. The Bodega is run by Antonio Navajas and his wife, Rosa Maria Gandarias. Their son, Roberto, is responsible for production and quality control and their daughter, Mercedes, is in charge of exports.

Venison Stew with Sage-infused Carrots

Rich, earthy flavours call for rich, earthy wines. Thankfully most countries offer a red that fits this category, and an aged Rioja fits the bills perfectly with its notes of sweet and savoury spice with dark, dried fruit flavours. We really like a Reserva Rioja with this dish. Full recipe

An estate with 60ha covering three of the Roussillon’s key terroirs, Lauriga is known for producing red wines of classic character.

Whilst white and rosé wines are also made, it’s the Carignan and Grenache Noir that are stars here (with the help of some newcomers too, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvédre and Merlot.

Now part of Domaines Paul Mas, this has led to massive improvement in the wines, thanks to investment in both vineyards and winery facilities.

We import two red wines from Lauriga which we’ve chosen for their Roussillon character and terrific value for money.

Founded by winemaking legend José Neiva Correia in 1998, DJF Vinhos is located in the Lisboa region which stretches north along the coast from the capital Lisbon. A simple philosophy with an ambitious aim: to transform the rich and diverse Portuguese varieties into top quality wines that are accessible to all. Quality and value for money are key, and the estate even buys in used oak barrels and employ two coopers to take them apart and strip them back to the new wood – as good as new for a fraction of the price! DJF is not short of fans, with more awards than any other Portuguese producer of the last 20 years, including red wine of the year at the IWC and twice Portuguese Winery of the Year in the New York Wine Competition since 2012.

Owned and managed by Gary and Cathy Jordan since 1993, this Stellenbosch farm has a history dating back over 300 years. Gary's a geologist, Cathy an economist by trade but together this husband and wife team is a phenomenon. Gary's parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the 146 hectare farm in 1982 and embarked on an extensive replanting programme, specialising in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes. Gary and Cathy worked internationally for two years, refining their high energy instincts with practical experience. They returned home in 1992 to build a new cellar and begin the winemaking odyssey that has cemented their position as one of the key players in the South African wine industry.

Fruity Pork

Succulent roast pork with a rich fruity sauce needs a wine with ripe, generous fruit and crisp, mineral acidity to balance out the sweetness of the sauce. We'd go for a ripe, new world white such as Chenin Blanc with enough weight to take on the meat and fruit combination. Full recipe

The Producer

Searching for the ideal site to plant a vineyard proved to be a 20 year journey for winemaker Philip Shaw but the final choice came by accident as he flew over the rolling hills of Orange in New South Wales in 1988. Further investigation revealed a wonderful balance of sunshine, soil, differing aspects and of course the high altitude at 900m above sea level that contributes to the unique freshness and concentration in the wines. The 47 hectares of vineyard are on the slopes of the now extinct volcano Mt Canobolas, making it one of the highest vineyards in Australia. Philip Shaw was recently named a Five Star winery in the James Halliday Wine Guide 2018.

Easy but not too easy

I'm forever in search of wines that I can enjoy without food-matching, and this can be as tricky with reds as with whites. Hence a leaning towards the lighter-bodied. I can't challenge the above views of St. Veronica Malbec Reserva as a more substantial red but I can testify that the glass before the meal (or after) works just as well as the one with.
