Ranging from light and fizzy to rich and syrupy, dessert wines are a fairly varied type of wine. Incredibly sweet, dessert wine, which is sometimes known as pudding wine, is usually served after a meal as a dessert — or even with dessert as an accompaniment. There are many types of dessert wine, but essentially, they all fall into five main categories.

Dessert wine is fermented in a different way than regular wine, and sweeter grapes are used to make it too. When making dessert wine, the winemaking process is slightly different than it is with regular wine. Winemakers stop the fermentation before the yeast turns of the sugar from the grapes into alcohol. There are many different methods used to stop fermentation early, like super-cooling.

Most people like to enjoy dessert wine with their dessert after a meal. Some people simply enjoy dessert wine by itself too. Whether it’s for an everyday meal, or for a special occasion, like Christmas, dessert wine makes an excellent after dinner treat. The most famous brands include European grown grapes, for example the Hungarian Tokay, many delicate French Sauternes and a great variety of delicious after-dinner ports.

Sparkling wine has quite a high acidity when compared to other types of sweeter dessert wine, making this variety taste a little less sweet. Lightly sweet dessert wines are light and sweet, and usually very fruity. Richly sweet wines are very sweet and they are made using high quality grapes and they can be aged too. Sweet red wines are fairly rare in the dessert wine industry now. Fortified wine is more diverse in terms of flavour. It can be dry or sweet. Fortified wines incorporate grape brandy.

While many different grapes are used to make dessert wine, certain grapes are used more often than others, like Muscat Blanc. This is simply because they have been traditionally used to make dessert wine, or because they have a naturally inherent sweetness that makes them perfect for making sweet dessert wine. The internet is one of the best places to shop for wine. If you want to purchase a high quality dessert wine, like French Sauternes or Hungarian Tokay, then browse our online store.
