HAVE A SUMPTOUSLY SWEET CHRISTMAS WITH ALDI
05 Oct 2018


Shoppers looking for something to make their festive celebration special need look no further than Aldi’s range of sweet and pudding wines – the perfect finales to a festive meal, or quality gifts for wine lovers.
 
St Stephen’s Crown Tokaji Aszu 5* (£16.99, 50cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 14th November
This Hungarian sweet wine is made using specially selected bunches of grapes that have been shrivelled by ‘noble rot’. Also know a botrytis, ‘noble rot’ is a type of fungus which perforates grape skins, causing them to shrink and concentrating the flavours of the juice. This process creates a delicious golden-coloured wine that is rich in flavour, but still fresh. With aromas of pear drops, candied orange and citrus, this is a delectable addition to a festive dessert.
 
Lakeview Cellars Canadian Ice Wine (£16.99, 37.5cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 14th November

This style of wine is more often found in high-end wine boutiques than on the supermarket shelves and is excellent value at just £16.99. The grapes used to make it have been picked and pressed while still frozen, adding an intensity of flavour to the finished liquid. Perfectly balanced with notes of honey, lemon and orange with a delicious fresh finish, this is a truly special wine.
 
Rubis Chocolate Wine (£9.99, 50cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 14th November
Aldi’s highly indulgent Chocolate Wine is back by popular demand. This fortified wine blends quality Tempranillo grapes with premium chocolate essences. Full of flavours of spice, vanilla and fresh cherries, this wine has a rich, velvety texture, with delicious chocolate notes and a hint of sweetness.
 
Sumptuously Rich Pudding Wine (£8.99, 37.5cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 14th November
This 8-year-old Muscat is rich with flavours of raisins, coffee, figs and caramel layered with an oaky character. Perfectly indulgent for the festive season, this wine has a smooth and delicious finish – drink alongside a mince pie for the taste of Christmas in a glass!

Australian Botrytis Semillon (£5.99, 37.5cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 14th November
Made from Semillon grapes grown in the Riverina area of Australia, this ‘Botrytis’ Semillon is golden in colour with aromas of honey, yellow blossom, ripe orange and apricot. Rich and silky in texture, this moreish dessert wine has an opulent sweetness which is balanced by a fresh and cleansing acidity. Winner of a Silver Outstanding medal at the International Wine & Spirit Competition last year, it is a truly excellent sweet tipple.
 
Maynard’s LBV Port (£9.99, 75cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 1st October
Dark and delightful, with a developing colour and a complex nose, this port has a palate packed with red cherry and pepper with a smooth and velvety finish. The perfect gift for a port connoisseur looking to add something special to their collection, this LBV port from Aldi’s longstanding supplier Barão de Vilar is a quality bottle at an unbeatable price. 
Maynard’s White Port (£7.99, 50cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 1st October
This on-trend addition to Aldi’s sweet and fortified range is golden in colour, with layered notes of citrus fruits, beeswax, orange peel, honey and quince. For an Instagram-worthy twist on a pre-dinner aperitif, try a White Port & Tonic – delicious over ice and garnished with a  sprig of mint.

Maynard’s Pink Port (£7.99, 50cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 1st October
Deliciously fruity and floral, this pink tipple gives port lovers the chance to try something a bit different this Christmas. With delicious flavours of ripe cherry and raspberries alongside subtle hints of honey and grapefruit, this port perfectly complements aged cheeses and charcuterie. 
Maynard’s Ruby Reserve Port (£4.99, 20cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 14th November
At a pocket-friendly price, this 20cl Ruby Reserve is the perfect stocking filler. With an intense ruby colour and violet undertones to make it stand out, it is packed with punchy red fruit flavours and should be drunk by the fireside for a truly indulgent festive nightcap.
Maynard’s 10 Year Old Tawny Port (£10.99, 75cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 1st October
With a deliciously dark golden colour, this Tawny Port is full of flavours that will excite and delight. Ripe berry fruit, mellow notes of chocolate, butterscotch and fine oak combine with a delicate nuttiness, hints of honey and a touch of toffee for a decadent delicacy.
Maynard’s 30 Year Old Tawny Port (£34.99, 75cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 14th November
For an extra special treat, try this complex wine with aromas of figs, sultanas, prunes, dried fruits and pistachios. This is a personal favourite of Aldi’s wine expert Sam Caporn who suggests that it may be too good to share – a secret treat to keep to one’s self this Christmas!
