Dessert Wine Varietals
One can easily get lost here; your senses can swoon at the exotica and intensity of dessert wines. There is rarely a quieter moment at a dinner party than when the dessert wine is served. Apricots, Grandma’s canned pears, wild flower honey, caramel, toffee, the list of wonderful sensations goes on and on. Each varietal, from a specific region often made in a method that is centuries old yields its own signature.
Often quite expensive because of the difficulty in making them, the specific and infrequently occurring conditions necessary to harvest grapes in suitable form and, finally, the very small quantity of juice yielded from these grapes when they are available. Given the labor in the vineyards and winery and the scant quantities but most of all the heavenly pleasure they are worth every farthing.
