Styles of sweet wines
While distinctively sweet, dessert wines can differ in colour, aroma and flavour, the production method used can also influence the overall style. The most well-known and popular types of dessert wine at Corks Out include:
The grapes remain on the vine until they shrivel, allowing them to develop a high sugar concentration. A fungus called botrytis can also develop, which causes the water within the grape to evaporate, leading to a dessert wine that is rich and sweet.
Also known as Eiswein, this sweet wine is made from the concentrated juice of grapes that are left on the vine until they freeze off in sub-zero temperatures. Sweet, pure and fresh, they have an aroma of stone fruits such as peach, apricot and mango as well as tropical fruit flavours and honey sweetness. Sweet wine can be grown in many climates, the most common growing countries are Canada, France and Austria.
Our recommendation: Neige Apple ice wine is pure and clean with an intense aroma of freshly-picked apples, which goes perfectly with blue or sharp cheeses. For something a little fuller, the Louis Guntrum Oppenheimer Herrenberg Silvaner Eiswein has a heady aroma and sweet flavour where vanilla and white chocolate are accompanied by candied citrus peel.
There are over 200 grape varieties in the Muscat portfolio. Mainly from France, these wines make up one of the most popular sweet wines in the world.
This is from the Australian wine growing region of Rutherglen. A bright palate with a long lingering finish of sun-ripened fruit and hints of vanilla, this sweet wine will not disappoint.
We also have a selection of Sauternes and Jurancon dessert wines available in our online range, which are incredibly sweet as well as rich and luscious in flavour.
All dessert and sweet wines available at Corks Out come with no minimum order and free delivery for most purchases, with next day delivery also available.
