THE PERFECT PAIR THIS CHRISTMAS - ALDI'S CHOCOLATE AND WINE
17 Nov 2017


If you love a glass of wine with your chocolate, discount supermarket Aldi’s Specially Selected Exquisite Chocolate and Wine Pairing range is just for you.  Available in store from 14th November, three special bars of chocolate have been created exclusively for Aldi to pair with Aldi’s Exquisite Collection wines, Rioja, Malbec and Riesling, with each containing its own blend of fruit and spices to match the wine’s flavours.
 
From only £2.49, Aldi’s Specially Selected Exquisite Perfect Pairings Chocolate is available in Milk Chocolate with Maple, Mixed Berries and Nutmeg, Dark Chocolate with Blackberry, Blueberry and Violet or Milk Chocolate with Honey, Apple and Orange.
 
 
Pair Aldi’s Specially Selected Exquisite Perfect Pairings Chocolate in Milk Chocolate with Maple, Mixed Berries and Nutmeg (£2.49. 80g) with a bottle of Aldi’s Exquisite Collection Rioja Reserva (£7.99. 75cl)
 
The Rioja’s classic aromas of vanilla, tobacco and wild fruits are complemented by the sweetness of the berries in the chocolate, while the savoury spices in the wine are complemented by a hint of nutmeg in the chocolate.  
 
 The ideal match for a glass of Aldi’s Exquisite Collection Argentinian Malbec (£6.29. 75cl) is Aldi’s Specially Selected Exquisite Perfect Pairings Chocolate in Dark Chocolate with Blackberry, Blueberry and Violet (£2.49. 80g)
The Malbec boasts aromas of fresh fruits thanks to their high-altitude vineyard plots. The plum and blackberry flavours in the wine are enhanced by hint of blackberry in the chocolate and the subtle violet notes of Malbec match those present in the chocolate.
For the ideal chocolate to suit Aldi’s Exquisite Collection Clare Valley Riesling (£6.99, 75cl), choose Aldi’s Specially Selected Exquisite Perfect Pairings Chocolate in Milk Chocolate with Honey, Apple and Orange (£2.49. 80g).
 
This dry Riesling has the characteristics of the green apple, which matches those in the chocolate. In addition, the light honey flavour notes of Riesling match the hint of honey you can taste in this beautifully crafted milk chocolate pairing.
