There are few better ways to wind up an evening than with a delicious Australian Fortified, and these are just the wines for a fantastic digestif or nightcap.
The Andrew Peace Masterpeace Cellar Release Muscat NV is sure to please. Lighter-bodied yet with terrific freshness and flavour intensity, it delivers a delicious mix of caramel, butterscotch, honey, vanilla, five-spice and fresh leather, finishing with savoury acid freshness – and pairs beautifully with rich, chocolate-based desserts.
From one of the ‘Founding Fathers’ of the Clare Valley, the Sevenhill Liqueur Verdelho NV shows this esteemed winery’s expertise in the style to its fullest. Flavoursome and generous with a sweet mix of fruit mince pie, caramel and nuts, lively acidity and a long, persistent flavour length, it’s a real treat with decadent desserts like a warm caramel pudding.
A pillar of the McLaren Vale wine region, Woodstock delivers yet again with the Woodstock Vintage Fortified Cabernet Sauvignon 2016. Displaying full, dense and rich currant, cassis and prune characters with a viscous texture, mouth-watering acidity and a plush finish, it’s a classic vintage Fortified that still has great future ahead of it – or is a delight to drink now, with a warm dark chocolate and sour cherry cake.
