Sweet Wines

The best way to navigate this section is to pick your pudding. If it’s fruit-based and lightish, choose an unfortified wine from an aromatic grape – muscat, gewürztraminer, scheurebe and petit manseng are all safe bets. Moving on to rich, creamy and possibly eggy concoctions, move up a gear and look for a bit of botrytris cinerea, or noble rot the natural miracle which is, without a doubt, the most glamorous route to sweet wine. Dense puddings, studded with spices, fruit and nuts, call for a bit of fortification, and chocolate, by no means the wine-killer of popular myth, merely needs careful management.
