Desert wine is ultra-rich, super sweet a luscious, intensely flavoured wine, boasting rich aromas and flavours of ripe tropical fruits such as lychee, papaya and pineapple, made from the intense liquid of frozen or dryed grapes. All varietals are sweet, but with a firm backbone of acidity, making them perfectly balanced.
These wines has got yellow color, which intensifies to a golden hue as they age. Dessert wines made from botrytized grapes have considerably greater aging potential than table wines.
The aromas alone are seductive and the taster derives great pleasure from simply smelling the rich apricot and honeysuckle perfume of a late harvest wine. The intense sweetness followed by the scintillating jolt of acidity makes the wine drinker’s mouth gush with pleasure. Why else have these wines been given the accolade, “nectar of the gods?”
These precisous wines are sold in 0.2l or 0.375l bottles.
