Delectably Delicious: Limited Release Après Dessert Wines

It’s About Wine! and Winexpert are pleased to offer you two delicious, Limited Release Après Dessert Wines.

Originally released in 2007 and returning due to popular demand every year for over a decade, is Après Chocolate Raspberry Dessert Wine (Port). The second half of this year’s limited release duo is another fan favourite that is returning after a seven year hiatus, Après Peach Icewine Style.

Après Chocolate Raspberry Dessert Wine & Après Peach Icewine both take 6 weeks to produce 11.5L (approximately thirty 375ml bottles or fifteen 750ml bottles) of finished product. They are both priced at $155 On-Premise or $99 Kit-Only. These two Après Dessert Wines are available at It’s About Wine! now.

The timing is just right to have this wine ready for the Holidays. Bottles of these limited offerings are perfect giveaways for friends, family, and party hosts. They make for a classy gift to give to clients and customers. If you don’t want to give any full bottles away (we completely understand!) these dessert wines are excellent for sharing with friends, family, co-workers, and guests. Sip after dinner or informally around the fire or Christmas tree.

Chocolate Raspberry Dessert Wine

This multiple gold-award winning wine is bursting with rich, intense flavours and aromas. The traditional Port character of warm, rounded cherries and plums is supported by a racy zing of bright raspberry. Perfumed and gently tart, with a luscious liquid chocolate rush in the middle of the palate it finishes with beguiling dark, bittersweet aromas of coffee, vanilla, and toast, all the way to a long, rich finish. Excellent on its own or with any dessert, or serve with toasted nuts or shortbread. Superb within a few months, this wine will age gorgeously.

Sweetness: Sweet   Body: Full   Oak: Medium   Alcohol by Volume: 17.5%

 

 

Peach Icewine 

Winexpert’s Peach Icewine was first introduced in 2007 and made four appearances up until 2011. Lucky us, after seven years on the shelf, Peach Icewine is finally making its long awaited return this year. Warm notes of sweet and succulent baked peach with light honeyed undertones. This wine has also won gold on several occasions at the WineMaker Magazine Amateur winemaking competitions.

Sweetness: Sweet   Body: Full   Oak: None   Alcohol by Volume: 13%

 

 

* due to legislation enforcing that only wines produced in specific regions of Portugal may use the name “Port”, Winexpert now calls their product “Dessert Wine”.  Name change aside, one thing you can be sure of is the same great taste! The finished product is as delicious as ever.
