STICKY DATE PUDDING

An all-round favourite, and wonderfully warm, sticky and fragrant, sticky date pudding is the perfect dessert to enjoy with Topaque – its delicious caramel-like flavour richness and depth is divine.

Pair with: Topaque

 

CHEESECAKE

Home-made cheesecake usually isn’t overly sweet, so an off-dry (semi-sweet) Riesling style is a delicious match as it has just a hint of sweetness.

Pair with: Off-Dry Riesling

 

LEMON TART

Who’s a tart? Sweet yet tartly astringent, good lemon tart is ideal with Late Harvest wines – especially those made with Riesling due to the variety’s classic lemon and lime characters.

Pair with: Late Harvest Riesling

 

APPLE PIE

A quality apple pie should actually have some attractive savoury elements, so you should only need an off-dry wine like a slightly sweet Prosecco to take it to the next level of yumminess.

Pair with: Off-Dry Prosecco

 

CHOCOLATE FUDGE BROWNIE

Dessert-article-image5.jpg

Mmmmmmmm chocolate. Muscat is sweet, rich, warm and chocolatey, so it’s the natural choice with chocolate-based desserts like gooey chocolate fudge brownie.

Pair with: Liqueur Muscat

 

Tiramisu

Tiramisu is such a comforting and textural dessert. Its layers of unravelling flavours make the gentle complexity of a Tawny the perfect accompaniment – don’t fight the temptation!

Pair with: Fortified Tawny

 

CRÈME BRÛLÉE

Dessert-article-image7.jpg

Ooh la la! Creamy and rich with fabulous texture due to the smokey toffee crunch, brûlée and other cream-based desserts are fabulous with the marmalade richness and wonderful texture of Botrytis-affected wines.

Pair with: Botrytis Semillon
