Make Something Speciale

(for a limited time only)

For a limited time only, Winexpert is offering three great products for you to make and enjoy this fall. We are pleased to announce the return of Chocolate Raspberry port and are excited to announce the return of Okanagan Peach Icewine (by popular demand) and the introduction of Blackberry Port.

Blackberry Port Style

Native to the Americas, Blackberries are bursting with intense fruit flavours. Often used to describe Cabernet Sauvignon, blackberry aromas are deep and richly fruity. This, along with lingering tannins and a gorgeous deep purple hue make it an excellent foil for the broad richness of Port. Bright berry notes lift up this wine, making it a superb foil for intense cheeses, roasted nuts and especially chocolate desserts. 

Food pairings: Delicious on its own or with any dessert, or serve with toasted nuts or shortbread.

Oak: Toasted

Sweetness: 7  

Body: Full  

Alcohol by volume: 15% - 16.5%


Chocolate Raspberry Port Style

*Gold medal winner at the 2008, 2009 & 2010 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.

Okanagan Peach Icewine Style

*Gold medal winner at the 2009 and 2010 WineMaker Amateur Wine Competition.*
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 grapes ripen to perfect intensity, with notes of honey, apricot, and spice. Winexpert’s Okanagan Peach Icewine style 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.

Oak: None

Sweetness: 8

Body: Full

Alcohol by volume: 11.25% - 12.5%

Reserve these great products to ensure you don’t miss out.
