On Wednesday 18th April, 2018 local distribution company Alstons Marketing Company Limited (AMCO) took specially invited guests on an sensory journey, showcasing Apothic Wines with an unforgettable chocolate pairing experience, hosted at COCOBEL/ Medulla Art Gallery.
The ‘Decadent’ pairings were led by Juan Botero, Regional Manager, E&J Gallo Winery and local Artisanal Chocolatier, Isabel Brash who collaboratively unlocked the flavor explosions that made each unique wine and chocolate duo work beautifully together.
Each of the distinctive Apothic wines is an inventive blend with its own delectable personality. With each indulgent glass of Apothic White, Crush, Red, Dark and Inferno was a meticulously selected COCOBEL chocolate, chosen to complement the wine’s notes but also ensuring that neither wine nor chocolate overpowered the other on the palate. The guests were blown away by these revelations!
“Decadence” also served as the exclusive unveiling for limited edition Apothic Inferno, newly available in Trinidad. Aged in charred, white oak whiskey barrels for 60 days, Apothic Inferno blends the red and dark fruit flavors of its wine with layers of maple and spice, giving way to a long, clean finish.
Crafted in California, each batch undergoes a time-intensive, barrel-aging process. The unique character and flavor profiles offer wine enthusiasts the opportunity to discover a bold, new experience. The barrels – cut, shaped, and bound by steel before being charred with flames were first used to age whiskey for years prior to becoming the home of Apothic’s new red blend.
“Those who have come to love Apothic know that we’re always looking to defy convention with unique blends and bold flavors,” said Juan Botero, Regional Manager E&J Gallo Winery. “Apothic Inferno brings a rebellious attitude to the wine category – even the label’s dark colors and intertwined graphics elicit a fiery style, perfect addition to our portfolio.”
By the end of the evening Apothic wines received rave reviews from seasoned wine drinkers and newcomers alike.
Guests were reminded that Apothic Inferno is a limited edition release by Apothic winery, with just a few cases available for sale.
