Chocolate Raspberry Port is Back! (and it's brought a delicious friend)
Posted June 11, 2008 | 0 Comments
Winexpert is pleased to announce that for a limited time and by pre-order only, you can make and enjoy not one but two wonderfully delicious great seasonal products this year.
Chocolate Raspberry Port
*Gold medal winner at the 2008 WineMaker Amateur Wine Competition.
Hugely popular last year, this wine is bursting with rich, intense flavours and aromas, has traditional Port character of warm, rounded cherry and plum, supported by a racy zing of bright raspberry. Perfumed and gently tart with luscious liquid chocolate, beguiling with dark, bittersweet aromas of coffee and vanilla. Toasty hints of oak guide the way to a long, rich finish. Excellent within three months, this wine will age gorgeously—if you can keep any that long!
Food pairings: Delicious on its own or with any dessert, or serve with toasted nuts or shortbread.
Alcohol by volume: 15% - 16.5%
Available September 2008
Okanagan Peach Icewine Style
The Okanagan Valley lies in the rain shadow of British Columbia’s Coastal mountains. The region’s very low annual average rainfall means that part of the valley is a true desert! In this climate Vidal grapes ripen to perfect intensity, with notes of honey, apricot, and spice. Winexpert’s Okanagan Peach Icewine style (containing local Vidal from this region) has deep floral notes, stone fruit and perfect sweetness, balanced with the sun-ripened perfume of a luscious peach.
Food pairings: Can be enjoyed all on its own, it’s an excellent accompaniment to earthy or salty cheeses like Danish blue or Tilsit, or spicy snacks like tapas or flavourful Asian dishes.
Alcohol by volume: 11.25% - 12.5%
Available early November.
Deadline for Pre-orders: Friday, August 8, 2008.
Reserve both of these great products to ensure you don’t miss out.
