SALE $20 OFF: Chocolate Cherry Pinot Noir

From our Niagara Mist range, deliciously different!

This Chocolate Cherry Pinot Noir is described as a luscious blend of juicy black cherry, rich dark chocolate and subtle vanilla flavours. You’ll savour every second from the alluring cocoa and ripe red fruit aromas to the gentle chocolaty finish. With its signature Niagara Mist easy-drinking, gentle fruit-forward sweetness and light body, this Chocolate Cherry Pinot Noir is just decadent enough to be a treat, but still light enough for every day. Given the profile of this wine, it has obviously been designed allowing a more versatile, year around, use. Exciting!

Recommendation for Christmas Holiday wines

The more time you allow red wines to age the smoother and more aromatic the wine turns out. A few styles do pretty well with a shorter aging time. Start one of these now for this Holiday! Our recommendations:

Red table wine: From our Traditional Vintage the Valpolicella and Gamay Bergamais as well as the full Cheeky Monkey line do well with a shorter aging time.

Blush: Traditional Vintage Zinfandel Blush (rosé, made dry or off dry)

White: All Traditional Vintage and all Cheeky Monkey kits are excellent to drink in just a few months’ time. (all kits can be made dry or off dry)

Fruit wine: The whole range of fruit wines gives great results with just a few weeks of aging. (The Chocolate Cherry Pinot Noir is on promotion this month with $20 off the regular price)

Dessert wine: Ice wines and Port, the most beautiful delight to finish off a meal.

Bring your own fruit, well received

 

..This is the season, “Harvest any fruit, and give it a try too….”

There are a few things you can do with your fruit harvest. One of them is to enjoy the fun of making your own wine at home. Fruit harvested from your own garden, berries picked on your secret slope, or even a good deal at the market, in all cases, it is easy to turn fruit into wine. Visit our store and I will explain you how to move forward on this. We carry all material needed.

A second option is to bring some of ‘your catch’ to the store and add it to your kit. Make your personal and unique wine. Adding your own fruit to the kit has gained quite some popularity over the past years. Give it a try too, you’ll be amazed. Of course, you can also bring your fruit juice to the store. We will then do the magic for you.
