Dessert wine, need we say more? While you may already be familiar with the iconic Noble One; most Riverina wineries produce award-winning dessert wines. This late harvest style happens when the botrytis fungus, called noble rot, shrivels the grape by taking the moisture and leaving a wonderful concentration of flavours. Lush and decadent the flavours can include citrus, dried apricot, marmalade, lychees and vanilla bean, balanced with oak.
The golden rule in matching dessert wines to food is ensuring your wine is at least as sweet as the dessert. Orange cake, honey roasted figs, poached fruits and panna cotta will be a match made in heaven.
