Back by Popular Demand ~ Chocolate Raspberry Port!
 
JUST FINE WINE & Winexpert are pleased to announce that for a limited time (and by pre-order only), you can make and enjoy Chocolate Raspberry Port - gold medal winner at the 2008 and 2009 WineMaker Amateur Wine Competition.
Hugely popular last year, this wine is bursting with rich, intense flavours and aromas, has traditional Port character of warm, rounded cherry and plum, supported by a racy zing of bright raspberry. Perfumed and gently tart with luscious liquid chocolate, beguiling with dark, bittersweet aromas of coffee and vanilla. Toasty hints of oak guide the way to a long, rich finish. Excellent within three months, this wine will age gorgeously...if you can keep any that long!
The Chocolate Raspberry Port pre-order deadline is August 7, 2009 and the product will be available September 2009. Order yours before it's gone!
 
Sweetness: 7
Body: Full
Alcohol by volume: 15% - 16.5%
Food pairings: Delicious on its own or with any dessert, or serve with toasted nuts or shortbread.

Are You Properly Caring for your Glassware?
  
You may have heard the purist say you should flush your glass 4 or 5 times with only hot water to get rid of the wine
residue, fingerprints and lipstick and that you should never, ever, wash your stemware in the dishwasher. This is well and good and certainly achievable for a formal wine tasting. So what about the real world? The one where we enjoy our wine with finger foods and in the presence of good friends and family,
where the party is over and littered glassware seems to have found its resting spot on virtually every horizontal surface. What
now Mr. Purist?
Without mentioning the specifics of the composition of wine stemware, we will divide it broadly into 2 categories - regular everyday
glass stemware and everything else, or specifically more porous. Regular glass stemware can be washed in the dishwasher, just
don't dry by heat.
Greater care must be taken with the porous glass as it can easily absorb soapy 'flavours'- so while your glass is technically clean,
it can alter the wine. The easiest way to care for these is to wash in the hottest water that is comfortable, with a small amount
of mild dish soap and baking soda, which will both soften the water and boost the power of the soap. Focus your efforts on the
outside of the glass - this is where the tough offenders are - fingerprints, lipstick, food residue... Finally rinse the bowl very
well with hot water and then rinse again. You can dry the glasses by placing them upside down or with a lint
free towel. Your glass is now ready for its next use. Drink in moderation and enjoy!
