BBQ Lamb with Roasted Vegetables and Crispy Baked Potato Chips
WITH CREEKSIDE SYRAH VQA
Ontario lamb is as good as any we’ve tasted, especially when you cook it on the barbecue and get all the juicy gradations in the meat from crispy to medium-rare. We’ve taken our wine-matching lead from Australia and paired it up with a Syrah, though ours is from Niagara not Oz. Creekside planted Syrah almost 20 years ago and has stuck by the cold-sensitive variety when many other growers gave up. Robust, medium-bodied, tangy and full of black cherry, plum and black pepper flavours, it’s a little bit of an unexpected choice, just like our potato chip side dish—a fun change from other potato recipes.
