Supermarket giant Lidl launched a sweet vegan wine that tastes just like hot cross buns in time for Easter.

The new vegan wine is described to be perfect for Easter feast as it complements savory meals and desserts.

The hot cross bun-flavored wine is made with sun-dried Muscat grapes that are dried for 10-15 days on specialized “esparto” dry grass from North Africa and southern Europe until they mature in oak barrels.

The process helps in giving the vegan wine enhanced aroma of raisins and spices as well as a full-bodied flavor and a sweet, syrupy taste like that of hot cross buns.

“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,” Richard Bampfield, Lidl’s master of wine, said in a statement.

This is not the first time that Lidl launched vegan alcoholic beverages. Last year, the supermarket chain launched a range of vegan wines for Christmas.

It includes one white and two red wines: Café Terrasse (£5.99), a white wine made from Muscat grapes described as “a delightful, refreshing, dry white with bright fruit flavours”; Vacqueyras (£8.99), described as “winter warmer with red fruits and spicy undertones”; and Ségurets Côtes-du-Rhône Villages (£6.99), described to be the perfect wine to accompany a nut roast.

Lidl’s new vegan hot cross bun-flavored wine is now available for £6.99.
