Food and Wine Pairing: Desserts

Tips

For wine and desserts to work well, the wine must be at least as sweet as the dish. Weight and texture are also important. Successful marriages can be devised by analysing and balancing keynote characteristics. A decadent double chocolate fudge pudding will stand up well against a vintage port, whereas a lemon tart is delicious with a glass of prosecco.
