Cavino Mavrodaphne ‘deus’ Patras Nv
One of the world’s great fortified sweet wines, this delicious blend is oak-aged like a ruby port, and ideal with cheese or sweet puddings. The grapes are fermented and extracted for about 4 days under controlled conditions. After that, the alcoholic fermentation is interrupted by adding alcohol. This helps to preserve a part of the grape sugars in the finished product, adding that sweet finish. Ideal with salty dishes, blue cheese, syrup desserts, and ripe fruits.

This Parparoussis Muscat Patras dessert wine is a beautiful golden straw color and has accents of lily flowers and spice. It also contains light peach aromas and tropical fruits. The palate is coated with bright acidity, ripe pineapple, ripe peach, and an uplifting balance of sweetness. Pair this delicious dessert wine with an apple tart, baklava, peach cobbler, or crème caramel.

This Vinsanto 12-year wine from Santorini is a dark color of aged cognac with a honey aroma. It has a complex nose with dried apricots and prunes scents, preparing for an excellent deep mouthfeel.
