Wine and Liqueur Pairings:
Fattoria Le Pupille Morellino di Scansano DOCG 2014, Tuscany Italy – (90% Sangiovese, 5% Malvasia Nera and 5% Alicante) This wine has a really lovely nose with scents of black tea, violets, black cherry, raspberries and red plums with a hint of balsamic and tobacco leaf. A really tasty wine, with flavors of red fruits and balsamic, with dried fruits on the finish. The acidity is well balanced by the fine tannins; the body has good depth and a distinguished richness. A joy to drink! Shopping downtown, you can purchase the wine at Sunterra Cellars, and stop at Jacek on 104St. Shopping in Sherwood Park, you can pick up the wine at Everything Wine and More, and stop by Jacek’s Sherwood Park location. Pair with Jacek Cocolate Ornament.
Delahaie Champagne Brut Rosé À Epernay, France – (80% of Pinot Noir, 20% of Pinot Meunier) Life is flat without Bubbles. Delahaie Rose is a lovely pale salmon colour, with strawberry, cherry and orange blossom on the nose. A brilliant palate, fresh and supple with persistent bubbles. Strawberry, raspberry flavours, with a hint of orange and savoury notes. The finish is long and rich, a very delightful Champagne. Shopping downtown, you can purchase the wine at Jasper Wine Market, and stop at Jacek on 104St. Shopping in Sherwood Park, you can pick up the wine at Everything Wine and More, and stop by Jacek’s Sherwood Park location. Pair with Jacek Milk Chocolate Ornament.
Elephant Island Framboise – 100% Raspberries, Fortified Wine, from the Naramata Bench, Okanagan BC. A favourite wine around here, excellent to pair with Jacek Chocolate (see our last pairing) Smells like a bucket of fresh picked raspberries on a summer day, citrus notes with hints of cocoa bean and apple mint. In the mouth it is beautiful wonderful fresh raspberries, lemon and cocoa earthiness. At once sweet, while being tart and fresh, rich and delicious. Shopping downtown, you can purchase the wine at DeVines, and stop at Jacek on 104St. Shopping in Sherwood Park, you can pick up the wine at Wine and Beyond Emerald Hills, and stop by Jacek’s Sherwood Park location. Pair with Jacek Sugar-Free Chocolate Ornament.
RumChata – A creamy liqueur made with Rum, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and some secret spicies. Milky white in colour; aromas of spice, ginger, toast and vanilla; rich and full with creamy sweet honeycomb and spiced flavours. Rum Chata is readily available in Edmonton, and Sherwood Park.
