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
raisins
(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 -
Noble rot
-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
and
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

with the nature!
Fortified Wines - Power to the Wines!
Why fortified? That term is because the sweetness of the wine is accentuated with theaddition of alcohol before the fermentation is finished. Yields a wine that has an extraamount of natural sugar unfermented that gives power and strength.Originally,
the addition of brandy was to preserve wine
, allowing more time on thelong journey of the ships and making them more stable.Depending on what stage you're adding alcohol is the ultimate sweetness. In early phases, it's sweeter and afterward, gives drier wines. The resulting alcohol levels are18-20% by volume approx. therefore
warning
!
These wines are very addictives and they lead express to the head!
I haven't delighted everyone because there're many varieties, among others, the Portwine (a.k.a. Oporto a Portuguese type red wine), Vermouth (Originally from Italywhite/red wine), Marsala (Italian, great for cooking and for desserts likeTiramisu!)and Sherry (or Jerez, Spanish white/red wine).In general lines, these fine white wines have aromas of ripe fruit (delicious), notes of honey (more in cases when are aged in oak barrels), and they can also havefragrances to tropical fruits.Depending on the type, if they're sickly sweet, it is necessary an
acidity quota
to provide
freshness
and to counteract that extra sweetness.
Sweet White Wines & Food Pairing
These wine types combine best with all kinds of 
fruity desserts
and fresh fruit tarts,ahh with creamy desserts like
mousses or creme brulee
or dulce de lechebased arefantastic!The Noble rot types are ideals with cheeses blue type,
Stilton or Roquefort
andsome types of pates. Not much explored, but they're very effective with sheep or goatcheeses like
 Pecorino, Manchego even type Crottin.
Certainly it's traditional that these wines have high ratings with handmade pastry andthe famousTurrones or Torronein the festivities.
