    1. Remove the lamb from the fridge and bring up to room temperature.
    2. Preheat the oven to 120 C / Gas 1/2.
    3. Score the meat and rub generously with olive oil, rosemary and seasoning. Place the lamb in a roasting tin then pour the wine around the lamb. Cover with tin foil, making a tent.
    4. Roast in the preheated oven for 3 hours. Remove from the heat and discard the foil. Spread the jam evenly over the joint and return to the oven for 30 to 40 minutes until sticky and the lamb is tender. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 20 minutes before serving.
