  1. Grease and line a 22cm fluted tart tin.

  4. Soak one gelatine leaf in a bowl of cold water for five minutes or until softened.
  5. Meanwhile, in a bowl, beat together the cream cheese, vanilla and half of the sugar until smooth. Add the mascarpone and beat until combined.
  6. Heat the milk in a small saucepan over a medium heat until hot. Squeeze the excess liquid from the softened gelatine leaf and add to the hot milk. Stir until dissolved.
  7. Fold the milk mixture into the cream cheese mixture until smooth. Spread overtart shell and refrigerate for one hour or until set.
  8. Combine the wine, 80ml of water, berries and remaining sugar in a small saucepan over a high heat. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for five minutes or until reduced slightly. 
  9. Transfer the wine mix to a heatproof dish and set aside to cool completely. Strain and discard the fruit.
  10. Soak the remaining gelatine leaves in a bowl of cold water for five minutes or until softened.
