Sweet & Dessert Wine MiniaturesDessert wine is made with grapes that contain high sugar content. When these grapes undergo the fermentation process, natural sugar is converted into alcohol. To prepare dessert wine, the fermentation process is stopped at an early stage before the yeast turns all the natural sugar into alcohol. This is done to preserve the natural sweetness of the grapes. They are highly acidic and hence balances the sweetness level in the drink.
Dessert wine comes in various styles depending on the sugar content and flavours. These types can be classified as: sparkling dessert wine, sweet dessert wine, fortified wine. 1. Sparkling Dessert Wine: Bubbly, highly acidic and low in alcohol, sparkling dessert wine is ideal if you plan on sipping a bubbly drink on a day on the beach or a picnic in the park. 2. Sweet Dessert Wine: This type of wine is made with the highest quality grapes in an unfortified style. It goes extremely well when paired with fruit-based and vanilla-driven desserts. 3. Fortified Wine: Fortified wines are made when grape brandy is added to wine and can either be dry or sweet. They have a high alcohol content and shelf-life as compared to the other types of dessert wine.
