Brilliant gold color. Floral, fruity aromas of white roses and lilacs, spicy peach pie, fruit salad, and white chocolate macadamia cookie with a velvety, vibrant, moderately sweet medium-to-full body and a sleek, involved, very long golden raisins, panettone a la mode, and honeyed nuts and orange finish with silky, crunchy, fruit tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A sensational flavorful and delicious dessert wine that is sure to please.

Dessert Wine

A dessert wine is just that, a wine made strictly to pair with desserts at the end of a meal. Dessert wines are sweet wines; while many are naturally sweet, some are sweetned through the addition of grape must.

Famous dessert wines include Sauternes from France’s Bordeaux region, Rutherglen Muscat from Australia and vendages tardives (“late picked”) from France’s Alsace region. Germany also produces many famous dessert wines, ranging from Spatlese to Eiswein (made from frozen grapes).

Dessert wines from Italy include Vin Santo, Recioto di Soave and Recioto di Valpolicella. While some dessert wines have alcohol in the 12-14% range, others such as Moscato d’Asti from Piedmont in northern Italy are very low in alcohol (5.5%).

Dessert wines can accompany certain specific foods, especially cakes, almond tortes and fruit tarts; however, Sauternes and foie gras is a classic pairing.

While some lighter dessert wines such as Moscato d’Asti or Brachetto d’Acqui are meant for consumption upon release, others such as Sauternes or Auslese from Germany can age for decades, thanks to their high natural sugar concentration.
