Sweets like tarts and cakes
“Sweet wines like French wines from Sauternes, Port and late harvest wines are able to pair with sweets wonderfully,” says Eric. The general rule of thumb is the wine needs to be as sweet as the dessert. Juanjo suggests the late harvest Josefina Pinol Sweet White 2013 with its complex honeyed flavours of raisins and marzipan for tarts, apple pie, crème brulée, panna cotta and pudding. Chocolatey desserts will go better with a Sweet Red with core flavours of dates, coffee and cocoa.
