Après Chocolate Raspberry Dessert Wine Available August 30, 2017Chocolate Raspberry Dessert Wine

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 a 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 on its own or with any dessert, or serve with toasted nuts or shortbread. Superb within a few months, this wine will age gorgeously.

Sweetness: 7   Body: Full   Oak: Medium   Alcohol by Volume: 17%

 

Après Chocolate Salted Caramel Dessert Wine Available August 30, 2017Chocolate Salted Caramel Dessert Wine

After a year hiatus, Chocolate Salted Caramel Dessert Wine is also back by popular demand. The velvety decadence of chocolate blends beautifully with rich, salted caramel. This one ages beautifully.

Après Toasted Marshmallow Dessert Wine Available August 30, 2017Toasted Marshmallow Dessert Wine

due to legislation enforcing that only wines produced in specific regions of Portugal may use the name "Port", Winexpert now calls their product "Dessert Wine".  Name change aside, one thing you can be sure of is the same great taste! The finished product is as delicious as ever.

Introducing Limited Release Eclipse NOCTURNAL

Jul 1, 2017

Grapes picked at night, Wine Lover’s delight.. Introducing NEW Limited Release Eclipse NOCTURNAL. 

Grapes picked at night, Wine Lover’s delight.. Introducing NEW Limited Release Eclipse NOCTURNAL. 

A new Eclipse is here. But just like the real thing, this rare phenomenon can only be experienced for a short time.

Following in the footsteps of the incredibly popular Eclipse FORZA (2015) and Eclipse BRAVADO (2016), Just Fine Wine & Winexpert are pleased to announce NOCTURNAL from Languedoc, France. NOCTURNAL is a classic blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault, with an unusual moonlit twist. The grapes were plucked from the vines in the cool of the night when sugar levels are more stable and acid levels are better. This results in a wine with richer flavour and aromatics. NOCTURNAL has a captivating palate of plum, black raspberry and woodsmoke and the wine kit also includes grape skins for added depth and flavour.

Winexpert has secured a limited supply of juice for this amazing French blend. Like the FORZA and BRAVADO before it, once it's gone, it's gone. 

NOCTURNAL can be ordered now at Just Fine Wine and will be available in-store beginning July 12th and until quantities run out. Ready in 8 weeks, this wine kit will produce approximately 23L of finished wine (roughly thirty 750ml bottles) and is priced at $219 On-Premise or $170 Kit-Only. Contact us to secure yours today!

 

Eclipse NOCTURNAL - Languedoc, France

Eclipse NOCTURNAL

 

Click to View Spec Sheet

THE REGION: LANGUEDOC, FRANCE. Blends reign supreme in Languedoc, a large coastal wine region in the south of France which stretches from the Rhône valley in the east to the Spanish border in the south west. A wide variety of grapes grow well in the exquisite Mediterranean climate and fertile soil.

THE WINE: NOCTURNAL is a classic blend with an unusual moonlit twist. The grapes were plucked from the vines in the cool of the night when sugar levels are more stable and acid levels are better. This results in a wine with richer flavour and aromatics. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault deliver complex spicy aromas with fruity plum and black raspberry on the palate, balanced with earthy woodsmoke. The full body and lush tannins make the finish just long enough to savour all the nuances in this gorgeous wine.

FOOD PAIRING: Try gourmet burgers to complement the smoky flavours in the wine or serve with a Cassoulet to match the Nocturnal’s southern France origins. A well-marbled cut of red meat makes for a more upscale pairing, but don’t forget the candlelight.

STYLE: Bold Red        SWEETNESS: Dry        BODY: Full        OAK: Heavy        ALCOHOL: 14%*

PRICE: $219 On-Premise | $170.00 Take-Home

*Alcohol level based on following Winexpert winemaking instructions.

Pink Moscato: Sip, Smile, Repeat.

May 1, 2017

Sip, smile, repeat. World Vineyard California Pink Moscato is back!

Sip, smile, repeat. World Vineyard California Pink Moscato is back!

Featuring a brand new look with the same fresh flavours of strawberry, raspberry and cherry you loved last year. Pink Moscato is light and refreshing on the palate making it great on its own or the perfect complement to fresh fruit kabobs, spicy BBQ dishes, chinese takeout and sweet desserts.

Not familiar with Moscato? This wine is typically sweet, lower in alcohol than most other varietals, and can be found in sparkling, still, and dessert styles. It is made from the grapes of the Muscat family, which includes over 200 varieties and can be grown anywhere and everywhere around the world. Having a lower alcohol content and a refreshing flavour profile make Moscato more than just a dessert wine. In recent years Moscato has experienced incredible growth in popularity and has been the fastest growing wine style commercially. Moscato has proven to cut across all sorts of demographic lines and is especially popular among younger consumers. This is partly due to the wine carving a real niche within popular culture - particularly within the Hip Hop music scene where it has been referred to or endorsed by such musical acts such as Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Lil' Kim, Drake, Waka Flocka Flame and DJ Khaled. In addition, Real Housewife of Atlanta NeNe Leakes developed her own "Miss Moscato" line. Mixed with vodka, Moscato has also become a nightlife staple in clubs and hot spots around the globe.

Perfect for Summer (and any time for that matter), World Vineyard California Pink Moscato is a 6 week kit that produces 23L (approximately thirty 750ml bottles) of finished wine and is priced at $140 On-Premise or $90 Kit-Only. Available for a limited time only at Just Fine Wine beginning in May. See what all the fuss is about, get yours today before they're gone!

Selection California Sauvignon Blanc Rose. Get Yours Today!

The STYLE:

Rosé wine has begun to come into its own in recent years and has become a serious style of wine unto itself. Rosés most often offer a lighter, brighter, sunnier take on your favourite red-wine grapes. This year's release is based on a white wine grape! Either way, rosés aren’t just for novice wine drinkers. Today’s rosés will please the palate of even the most discerning wine aficionado. Lip-smacking fruit and mouth-watering acidity, lightly chilled rosé wines are versatile and food-friendly.

Our SELECTION:

California Sauvignon Blanc Rosé

The Region:

Northern California
Grown in a classic Mediterranean climate featuring warm days and cool evenings, the region’s steady breezes provide the grapes with natural air conditioning throughout the growing season. This perfect climate produces wines with beautiful aromatics and refreshing natural acidity.

The Wine:

Pale salmon colour with lovely tropical notes of pineapple and white peach with raspberry and cherry. The wine is off-dry but the vibrant acidity balances it out. Full and juicy, a crisp and refreshing finish makes this a perfect sipping wine. 

BODY: MEDIUM   ALCOHOL: 11%   SWEETNESS: OFF-DRY

Food Pairing:

Rosé really does go with (almost) everything. This particular rosé has some residual sweetness making it a perfect partner for spicier fare. It’s also a great match for seafood, chicken and pork.
