Berry Burgundy Sorbet for #SundaySupper

Berry Burgundy Sorbet | Magnolia Days

The corkscrew is turned and twisted into the cork. A tug on the lever pulls the cork from the bottle. That moment of release is sounded with a “Pop”. It is a special moment indeed. Right then is when wine really comes to life. It is when wine becomes a part of meal, celebration, or simply enjoyed on its own. The versatility of cooking with wine spans from savory to sweet. Each wine has a flavor profile which matches and enhances food flavors. When a special wine arrived at my door, I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it. Berry Burgundy Sorbet was soon created and churning in my ice cream freezer.

What special wine arrived? It was the 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Hearty Burgundy by Gallo Family Vineyards. It has a celebratory label and a blend to match closely to the original one. The flavors range from dark berry to plum. It is the dark berries I focused on when making the sorbet. I used a combination of blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries.

Berry Burgundy Sorbet is a wonderful and light dessert. It is the right ending to a big meal, especially one made or paired with Hearty Burgundy. The meal will flow nicely from beginning to end and will be tied together with the wine. The sorbet stays soft even after freezing because of the wine. It has a balance of tartness and sweetness along with a harmony of berry flavors from both the fruit and wine.

This is absolutely stunning, I love the idea of incorporating wine into an sorbet---and it's hot enough here in Los Angeles to really enjoy it!

We like frozen treats all year long. The temperature outside doesn't seem to change our cravings for it. However, it is extra nice to cool down with on a hot day.

I've never had a sorbet made with wine but it's so gorgeous!!

It was my first sorbet with wine and now I think I'll add some in most of the ones I make from now on. I like both the flavor component and the way it keeps it from getting too hard.
