A whole leg of lamb weighs between 2.25-2.75g and will feed 6-8 people. A favourite cut of lamb for roasting, it yields plenty of lean, tender meat and can be divided into two joints: the knuckle end and the fillet end. Ask your butcher to trim the end of the leg, if you like.
Spanish reds made from the Tempranillo grape have a natural affinity with lamb. Try a red Rioja, then, or a Tempranillo from the Navarra region.
