Sweet White Wines and Dessert Wines
What is the definition of a good wine? It should start and end with a smile.”-William Sokolin
Liqueur wines, dessert wines, fortified wines or choose the name you want dependingof its origin, but..why we cannot call to this sweet wine club - awesome wines! It'd beyour palate which gives the names because your sensations rule.Well, if we're doing a wine tasting of these sweeties what if we see something moreabout them; an important characteristic is that winemakers produce them in reducedform, the yields are very low and for that reason they are pricey…
but worth them!
Wine and Raisins -Sound a Gorgeous Dessert-
Yes, it isn't specifically a dessert, although it could be…the wines are made from
(the grapes are dried intentionally with dry-air or in the sun, giving a highconcentration of sugar and sweetness later. Typical wine examples but rare, Italian,French and Spanish (quite obvious to mention these origins, aren’t they?)Similar effects have with
late harvest wines
, the grapes are left deliberately longer than normal at the vine, getting - a very sweet grape must - for further preparationand /or aging in oak barrels.Worthy representatives are Riesling, Semillon, Torrontes and to a lesser extent, it can be a Viognier, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
Wine and Fungus …Peculiar Combination!
For natural processes or induced -
-makes that a fungus (Botrytis cinerea)affects grapes, generating raisins -it is necessary to have an especial climate in termsof moisture and heat- to produce the effect of grape dehydration, imparting an aromaand flavor that is typical, shining later in the wine bottle. By the way, have you ever drunk a wine glass of them?Emblematic French sweet wines are the Sauternes wines in Southern France and theSemillon grape is appropriate.
Wine making is an art
they must do it very carefully
, because if there's toomuch moisture the fungus can spread and lose the entire crop; it isn't easy to play
