Decadent and delicious all in one bite. Made with silky smooth Apothic Cab with jammy notes of dark fruit and teases of vanilla.

Apothic Cab Cheesecake




200g digestive biscuit

80g unsalted butter, melted

15g sugar



340g cream cheese, softened

60g plain Greek yogurt, at room temperature

397g can of sweetened condensed milk

1 large egg at room temperature

30g plain flour

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Pinch of salt



1 tbsp powdered, unflavored gelatin

175ml Apothic Cabernet Sauvignon

2 tbsp hot water

4 tsp sugar




1. Preheat the oven to 180°C

2. Line 8×8 square baking tin with aluminum foil, leaving two sides hanging over the edges.

3. In a food processor, pulse the digestive biscuit into fine crumbs. (If you don’t have a food processor, place the biscuits in a Ziplock bag and roll a rolling pin over.)

4. Add sugar and melted butter and pulse until the crumbs are evenly moistened with butter. Transfer the mixture into the prepared baking tin. Evenly spread it, lightly pressing into the pan. Bake for 10 minutes and cool on wire rack.

5. In a large mixing bowl with whisk attachment, beat cream cheese, Greek yogurt, and condensed milk until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the egg, flour, vanilla extract, and salt. Continue to whisk until well combined, about 2 minutes.

6. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the crust. Bake it until the filling is set but not browned, for about 25 minutes. Cool the cheesecake to room temperature (about 2 hours), then refrigerate for at least 2 hours to chill.

7. To make the wine gelée, sprinkle the gelatin over 100ml of the wine and let it sit for 5 minutes.

8. Meanwhile, stir in the sugar in the hot water. Add the sugar water into the wine with gelatin. At this point, the mixture will be a little cloudy. Mix well until gelatin is completely melted. (If needed, microwave for 30 seconds to warm the mixture up. The mixture should become clear.) Add the remaining 75ml of wine and cool the mixture to room temperature, about 5 minutes. Gently pour the wine mixture using a back of the spoon over the cooled cheesecake. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight, until the wine topping is set completely.

9. Cut into 16 squares (or even smaller, if desired), before serving.
