#9 Sweet Treat

$146.78

 

This Sweet Treat gift is perfect for any wine lover who enjoys sipping Italian-style dessert wines. Marisa 2015 in a 375 ml bottle and Vincero 2008 in a 500 ml bottle. The bottles are tucked inside a two bottle Foreign Affair Winery black box.

Marisa 2015 – 375 ml bottle
Made from Riesling, the enticing aroma showcases the ripe peach, apricot, honey, tropical fruit, and ripe citrus notes. While the palate is delighted by sweet ripe white peaches and apricots, together with ripe mango and mandarin flavours. This is a rich dessert wine with an incredible luxurious balance and finish.

Marisa is made from 100% estate grown Riesling, handpicked, and then patiently dried using the traditional appassimento method (grapes were left to dry for 90 days after picking).

Delicious on its own or as an aperitif with foie gras or duck liver pate. Pairs perfectly with dessert (the trick is to ensure the dessert wine is sweeter than the dessert) such as lemon meringue pie, and fruit pie or crumble (particularly peach pie or crumble).

Vincero 2008 – 500 ml bottle
From Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, this wine is almost black in colour which hints at the concentration and intensity in this wine. Layers of blueberry, raspberry, plum and currant aromas explode over nuances of eucalyptus, herbs and marzipan. A wonderful sweetness is balanced by good acidity, enveloping the palate with unsurpassed roundness, texture, intensity and finesse! Subtle notes of cocoa and vanilla appear on the finish which seems to continue indefinately.

This wine is made in a sweet ‘recioto’ style.  100% of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were dried prior to fermentation.  This process, known as appassimento, is common in the Veneto region of Italy.  After fermentation, the wine was aged in French oak for 12 months.

Enjoy as an aperitif, with full flavoured cheeses or with raspberries and chocolate for dessert… or better yet, serve as the dessert.
