If you’re a devotee of wine and dessert, you’ve probably wondered how to strike the right balance so that the two enhance each other.
Although it is commonly suggested that sweet wines are the ideal choice for dessert, the truth is that the optimal pairing depends on a number of factors.
To begin with, it is important that the wine and dessert maintain a balance between sweetness and acidity. If the dessert is particularly sweet, the wine selected should have high acidity to balance the sweetness.
An excellent companion for these affairs is the Casillero del Diablo Devil’s Collection White, a young and vibrant wine. On the other hand, if the dessert is acidic, a fruitier wine like Diablo Dark Red will work to neutralize that acidity.
Another relevant aspect is the type of dessert that will be served. If it is a dessert with chocolate, for example, a dark chocolate macaron, it is suggested to pair it with a red with hints of dark fruit, such as Trivanto Golden Reserve. This wine, with its exuberant bouquet, promises an unforgettable experience.
On the other hand, if the dessert is fruity, a rose or white wine would be the ideal accompaniment. Imagine a red fruit and cheese tart; For this type of enjoyment, the new Reservado Dulce Rosado is an excellent choice. If the cake includes pastry cream and tropical fruits, Reservado Dulce Blanco will provide the perfect subtlety.
It is also necessary to consider the degree of alcoholism of the wine. If the dessert is light, such as a fruit cake, the wine should have a low alcohol content so as not to overpower the flavor.
If the dessert is stronger, such as chocolate cake or flan, a wine with a higher alcohol content may be suitable.
For example, if you’re looking for a caramel fondant or chocolate brownie, a standout choice is 1000 Stories, a wine aged in bourbon barrels, which will give that delicious bite more depth due to its aromatic characteristics.
These are just a few suggestions for creating excellent pairings between wine and dessert, but you can always experiment with different combinations to find the one that best suits your tastes and preferences.
