2016 Dessert Wine Kits

For the past few years our seasonal ‘flavoured’ ports such as Chocolate Raspberry etc. have been very popular. Now they return and are renamed ‘Dessert’ wines in keeping with the industry’s policy of not naming wines as per traditional locations. Therefore our port kits are now called dessert wine kits. They remain the same as far as top quality ingredients and great finish.

Peppermint Mocha Dessert Wine: New this year, Dark chocolate and cool peppermint blend seamlessly with the rich coffee notes and dark fruit.

Red Velvet Dessert Wine: New this year, Rich and velvety notes of dark berry with a hint of moist sponge cake enveloped in decadent cocoa.

Chocolate Raspberry Dessert Wine: This wine brings together notes of rounded cherry, plum, and bright raspberry with rich chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Excellent on its own or with any dessert, or serve with toasted nuts or shortbread.

Orange Chocolate Dessert Wine: This rich specialty wine is an intricate mélange of lively flavours that tempt the nose and reward the palate. Rich aromas of dark chocolate are set gracefully against a frame of refreshing citrus and vanilla notes. The palate is endowed with a full-bodied and balanced combination of delicious chocolate, hints of orange peel and a medium-sweet finish

Coffee Dessert Wine: Energize your senses with this comforting flavour experience! Dating back to the 15th century, coffee has been enjoyed worldwide as an invigorating elixir. Typical of medium roast coffee, aromas of toffee, burnt marshmallow and chocolate will entice you and follow through to a palate which finishes with lingering notes of vanilla.

Black Forest Dessert wine: Bursting with rich aromas of red and black cherry, this full-flavored wine also has a hint of dark chocolate fused with plum on the nose. Rich and sweet on the palate with an enjoyable warm finish, this dessert in a bottle is an irresistible complement to your holiday festivities.

These Seasonal Special dessert wine kits are in stock now for only $105 each. We have a limited number in stock – they are only available on a first come basis.
