Lidl has launched a delicious sweet wine for Easter that tastes like hot cross buns and is vegan-friendly!
Supermarket chain Lidl’s range of own-brand alcohol regularly pips more expensive brands to the top spot in blind taste tests, and now the supermarket has got us hopping for joy as it releases a vegan-friendly wine that’s flavoured like hot cross buns.
The sweet wine, priced at £6.99, perfectly complements both savoury meals and desserts, making it the perfect accompaniment for your Easter feast.
The wine is made from sun-dried Muscat grapes that are dried for 10-15 days on specialised “esparto” dry grass from North Africa and southern Europe before being matured in oak barrels to enhance the aromas and give the wine a full-bodied flavour and a sweet, syrupy taste.
According to Lidl’s Master of Wine, Richard Bampfield: “This rare Spanish wine from the historic Malaga region boasts unique aromas of raisins and sweet spice, very much like that of the cinnamon and nutmeg flavours in hot cross buns. An exciting find and superb value, this wine is the perfect indulgence for all your Easter treat needs.”
Last year, the budget supermarket chain launched a vegan wine collection featuring three varieties of wine as part of its new Wine Tour focusing on the Rhône Valley.
