This chocolate is for people that love the distinctive red fruit notes of Madagascan chocolate but want to try something different as The Chocolate Tree have created a chocolate made with unroasted cocoa beans. Interestingly roasting is another of the key stages of chocolate making process where a modicum of flavour and aroma is produced, but still, if don't in an overzealous way can actually destroy a chocolate. And with the Criollo strain of cacao being one of typically fine flavour the acidity controlled with other processes is a difficult task to master
Whilst the acidity is certainly present, it isn't over-powering. It is incredibly heavy on the red fruits - all that wine-like character is still very much evident. It has a profile reminiscent of blackcurrant jam and incredibly long-lasting flavour payload. Even for moments after the melt you will still have a bountiful 'zing' present in your mouth.
