New Limited Release Italian Coastal Sunset wines

Italy is no stranger to wine, with some of the oldest wine producing regions of the world contributing to approximately 1/5 of the world’s wine production. Grapes are grown in almost every region of the country with more than 1 million  vineyards under cultivation.  Italy’s long shoreline helps to moderate the climate for the coastal wine regions. The extensive mountains and foothills throughout the country create varying elevations for grape growing in a variety of climate and soil conditions.

It is with this idyllic destination in mind that Wine Kitz is proud to introduce our latest Limited Release wine kits: our Italian Coastal Sunset series Trebbiano-Riesling and Barbera-Sangiovese blends.

Italian Trebbiano-Riesling
Wine Kitz Italian Coastal Sunset 2011 wine kitsLight straw in colour with a bouquet and flavours of ripe peach, apple, pear and tropical fruits. The wine finishes clean with citrus notes and a hint of residual sweetness.  A perfect match for most chicken and fish dishes, ham, oysters, shellfish and veal.

Italian Barbera-Sangiovese
Beautifully bright ruby red in colour with a bouquet of ripe blackberry, cherry and plum.  On the palate you will experience flavours of ripe fruit and spice with fresh tannins and subtle oak on the finish.  A nice complement to dishes in tomato sauces such as chicken or veal parmesan, meatballs, lasagna, pizza and spaghetti.  Goes well with roast duck and plum sauce.

These kits are available by pre-order only.
The deadline to pre-order kits is Thursday, July 14, 2011.

They should arrive in-store in early August – just in time to be made and enjoyed for the holiday season!

NEW Orange Chocolate Port

Apologies for the long delay in updating – it’s been a busy few weeks at the store! We’re back now, though, and we’ll have a number of new updates for you over the next few weeks, so stay tuned :)

First off, a new product launch!Orange Chocolate Port

Following the success of last year’s Cherry Chocolate Port, we are excited to introduce our latest specialty-series Port wine kit: Orange Chocolate Port.

This full flavoured Port style dessert wine is full-bodied with complex aromas and flavours of dark chocolate and hints of sweet, ripe oranges. The flavours are rich and lingering making this truly a special wine to be sipped and savoured. Wonderful to sip on its own, anytime when you are looking for that special treat. Also great as a dinner aperitif or to enjoy with a sweet dessert at the end of a great meal.

As with all of our limited release wines, quantities are limited and kits are available by pre-order only before September 16th. Kits will be available in-store by mid-October – just in time to be bottled for holiday gift-giving or sipping (although we always recommend aging them before enjoying them!).

Call or visit us in-store soon to reserve your kit of this fabulous holiday release!
