Aldi

Last year it was a bestseller, now the supermarket has announced that it will be bringing back its wine, by popular demand.

Aldi is known for its award winning wine, and Christmas is a time for indulging in all things chocolate - so it's only sensible that a chocolate wine would be popular at this time of the year.

Hitting the shops on November 14th, the Rubis Chocolate Wine, will be perfect for a dinner party or just indulging with at Christmas. The sweet wine, full of Christmassy flavours such as spice, vanilla and fresh cherries, has a rich, velvety texture, with delicious chocolate notes.

The supermarket launched the wine (opens in new tab) last Christmas and it proved so popular that its back for the second year in a row. Last year it was even awarded ‘silver outstanding’ for quality in the International Wine and Spirit Competition.

The fortified wine blends quality Tempranillo grapes with premium chocolate essences, so we're sure its going to be a popular wine throughout the Christmas period.

The budget supermarket has proved that low cost doesn’t have to mean bad quality, when it comes to its wines. Last year Decanter magazine gave one Aldi wine, its Lot Series Minervois La Liviniere 2015, a gold award for its quality,

Aldi is also known for its quirky take on wine. In March it revealed that it had added three half-sixes bottles of wine to its range. Perfect for mid week drinking or when you don’t want to open a whole bottle.

Rubis, the brand behind the chocolate wine (opens in new tab) said, "Our chocolate wine is an unforgettable taste sensation – extraordinary in every way.

"Surprising, distinctive and deliciously decadent it satisfies the curious and rewards the adventurous."

The wine will be on sale for £9.99 - a bargain for two of our favourite things! Hurry up Christmas, we can't wait to get our hands on a bottle.
