A deliciously complex dessert wine, with a bouquet of clover honey, cinnamon and beeswax. Luscious and silky on the palate with rich orange, apricot and cocoa notes leading to a long, smooth finish.
Fruit based desserts are usually not hugely sweet but rather refreshing with high acidity. Ideally it is best to match the flavour profile of the dessert, its sweetness and acidity with the wine. When in season, apricot and peach dishes are sublime with noble rot dessert wines (like classic Sauternes or Tokaji for example) because they echo each other’s flavours.
Tarts and flans with apples and rhubarb are high acidity and so is Late Harvest Riesling from New Zealand which will work perfectly with such desserts.
