Not a fan of dry, red wines? Try Kourtaki’s Mavrodaphne of Patras

27 Jun

Kourtaki’s Mavrodaphe of Patras is a Greek wine is made with raisins and dates. Once poured into a wine glass, take a sniff. The scent of raisins will fill your nostrils. The taste of Mavrodaphne is very similar to a port, and while it does have a higher alcohol content – 15 percent alcohol – it’s not as high as most ports.

Unlike regular red wines, the Mavrodaphe is very sweet and fruity and is best served chilled.

Priced at around 10 dollars a bottle, it is a very affordable bottle for anyone with a sweet tooth.

It’s paired well with fruits, cheese, chocolate and pastries.

On a side note, it is also one of my sister’s favorites.

    I typically am not a fan of red wine, but I’ll swear by this one. It’s delicious warm or with a few ice cubes.. and it’s sweet – like me 🙂
