Chocolate Raspberry and Chocolate Orange Port

Chocolate Raspberry Port

5 time Gold Medal winner at the WineMaker Amateur Wine Competition 2007-2011

Back by popular demand this 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 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 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%

Chocolate Orange Port

This intensely flavoured Port-style dessert wine is full-bodied and rich, with complex aromas of bittersweet dark chocolate, thick with ripe orange and marmalade flavours. Excellent sipped in a comfortable chair by the fire, it is also brilliant with nuts and cheese, or drizzled over vanilla ice cream for a completely decadent after-dinner treat. Ready to drink within three months, ChocolateOrangePort will age for several years, evolving and showing complex layers of flavour over time.

I have just completed a third kit of r. chocolate port and....Oh Boy.
Adding a half bottle of Brandy to the mix gives a dessert wine to die for.
All three kits have been done this year....so how long does it last.....not long.
