12 WINES OF CHRISTMAS | 2019 Estate Shiraz | Leg of Lamb with Garlic & Rosemary

12 WINES OF CHRISTMAS | LEG OF LAMB
Festive pairing: James Estate 2019 Estate Shiraz

cook time: 90 minutes plus resting time | serves: 8 guests

Ingredients

  • 8 servings
  • 1 (7-pound) semi-boneless leg of lamb, aitchbone removed, fat trimmed to ¼ inch thick, and lamb tied
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon fine sea salt
  • tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ cup dry red wine or broth

Method

  • Pat lamb dry and score fat by making shallow cuts all over with tip of a sharp small knife.
  • Pound garlic to a paste with sea salt using a mortar and pestle (or mince and mash with a heavy knife) and stir together with rosemary and pepper. Put lamb in a lightly oiled roasting pan, then rub paste all over lamb. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Roast lamb in middle of oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted 2 inches into thickest part of meat (do not touch bone) registers 130°F, 1½ to 1¾ hours. Transfer to a cutting board and let stand 15 to 25 minutes (internal temperature will rise to about 140°F for medium-rare).
  • Add wine to pan and deglaze by boiling over moderately high heat, stirring and scraping up brown bits, 1 minute. Season pan juices with salt and pepper and serve with lamb.
