After Dinner and Dessert wines

Often referred to as dessert wines, sweet wines are produced globally. A myriad of techniques can be used to coax residual sugar into the finished wine. The ‘Noble Rot’, Botrytis, occurs when growing conditions are just right. The Portuguese create sublime age-worthy wines in the Douro Valley by adding brandy to partially fermented grape juice. And, closer to home, Canada produces the gold standard of Icewine, a luxurious, viscous wine made by crushing frozen grapes. Favorite sweet styles of oenophiles always display a balance of sugar & acid, and are nimble, not cloying.
