Aldi’s chocolate wine back by popular demand

Discount retailer Aldi is bringing a fortified Spanish chocolate wine back to its UK stores next month in time for Christmas due to popular demand.

Bottles of Rubis Chocolate Wine will be hitting Aldi’s shelves on 14 November, priced at £9.99 for 50cl.

The fortified ‘wine’ is made from a blend of Tempranillo grapes and “premium” chocolate flavouring.

According to its makers, in addition to chocolate, Rubis boasts notes of “spice, vanilla and fresh cherries”, and has “a rich, velvety texture”.

Rubis describes the wine as being: “surprising, distinctive and deliciously decadent”.

The indulgent wine launched at Aldi last Christmas and proved so popular that the supermarket is bringing it back for the festive season.

Last year the sweet wine scooped a silver medal at the International Wine and Spirit Competition and was on pour at db’s consumer event, The City Wine Show at Stationer’s Hall in St Paul’s.
