Food & Wine Matching Guide: Christmas Desserts

It really is the time of year to indulge! Nothing is more delectable than a delicious dessert paired with an equally divine wine, so we’ve put this guide together to make sure your festive season is sufficiently sweet.

The main consideration with a sweet pairing is that the wine is at least as sweet as the dessert, as a dessert that’s sweeter than the wine will make the wine taste dull and knock out its character.

Traditional Christmas pudding

Deliciously sweet and warm, you’ll need a wine with similar attributes.

Pair with: Tawny or Vintage Fortified

Pavlova

Crunchy and textural yet fruit-sweet, choose an off-dry, not overly sweet wine style.

Pair with: Sweeter Prosecco or off-dry Moscato

Trifle or Tiramisu

Soft and luscious with layers of flavour, trifle needs a medium-sweet wine match.

Pair with: Late harvest Semillon or Riesling (not too sweet)

Sticky date with caramel sauce or warm gingerbread pudding

Super-sweet and decadent, you’ll need wine with a generous core of sweet fruit.

Pair with: Topaque

Rum balls or Fruit Mince Pies
