About this deal

Sweet wine and sweet food pairings can easily be off-key if you don’t get the balance right, so choosing your moment to serve a super sweet wine requires more thought than if you were serving a lighter wine. When it comes to bringing it all together and enjoying a glass of dessert wine with your favourite festive puddings, there are a few handy tips for how to nail these sweet pairings. The goal is to balance your chosen dessert’s flavours, sweetness and textures with your wine – you want them to get along and complement each other. But if you really don’t want sweeter wine with your trifle, try something like a Crémant de Bourgogne – this champagne-like sparkling white wine is fruity and creamy and will complement all the cream in the trifle. Its high sugar content and flavours of raisin, sultana and prune make it a great pairing with sticky toffee pudding and mince pies.

For deliveries to the USA please note that due to severe restrictions by courier companies, the maximum amount of liquid that can be sent is 75cl per consignment. A full box also helps to reduce the small chance of damage, as empty compartments collapsing can be a cause of this.Contrast intensity – With a rich and intense pudding, pick a highly acidic wine to help cut through the sweetness and provide a refreshing contrast. Please be aware that even if the label looks different, that product will be the same product if it has the same barcode. Once your kitchen has filled with a Christmas aroma that will make you sing jingle bells, our the must into your sterilised fermentation bucket, top up with water to just over 2 gallons, and allow to cool before pitching in the yeast. Serving Suggestion: Pour into a pan and heat at a low temperature until the wine is simmering gently. Please note that we are not IOSS registered due to the nature of our products (alcoholic beverages).

These are richly sweet dessert wines where the winemaker has achieved a naturally high level of sweetness in the wine by harvesting the grapes at unconventional times (rather than through fortifying). This type of Port is best for milk chocolate treats (or sugary chocolate cakes like yule logs) and also fantastic with Christmas Pudding.

If you find yourself with leftover Christmas Pudding we have a couple of suggestions for making the most of it. Enjoy with a glass of L’Epiphanie de Sauternes 2019 (from one of Bordeaux’s prestigious First Growth châteaux) and you’ll soon discover why it’s such a classic pairing. Beers of Europe strictly adheres to these regulations and by agreeing to our Terms and Conditions on checkout you confirm that you are over 18 years old. The Hans Lang Hattenheim Hassel Riesling Beerenauslese is a lovely bottle to try – and, like Tokaji, it goes rather nicely with marzipan too. Look out for a Late Harvest Riesling, like a German Beerenauslese or head to New Zealand for the trophy-winning Seifried Estate Sweet Agnes Riesling 2019.

This recipe will give you a festive tasting desert wine that will go fabulously with your festive cheeseboard or as an alternative to traditional mulled wine, with only 3 ingredients it is suitable for the beginner brewer and will impress your guests! People often stick to the red wine they have been drinking with their main course when they get to their dessert but this is in most cases a mistake as they soon find out. Keep on top of the racking process, the suet used in the Christmas pudding does continue to drop for quite some time and can cause off flavours if left. This is a proper winter warmer, full of all those lovely spices and dried fruit notes you'd expect to find in a Christmas pudding. And of course there is always dessert wine like Sauternes which will pair well with most desserts and – perhaps more surprisingly – with blue cheeses like Roquefort (and with foie gras for those with a preference for more savoury dishes).

Lemon tart is not the easiest to pair with wine as not only do you need to match the sweetness but also the tangy citrus flavours. Vin Doux Naturel – like port, VDNs are fortified with spirit to stop fermentation before all the sugar has converted into alcohol. Due to their richness and dense body, these Christmas dessert wines are best enjoyed as an after-dinner tipple rather than before you sit down for a big meal. You might think that drinking a wine that is even sweeter than a dessert would make the dessert seem sickly sweet but that is not the case.

Try the Tenuta Olim Bauda Moscato d’Asti Centive, which also pairs very nicely with fudge, trifle (a simple, non-alcoholic one) and panettone. Fortified wines are wines that have had a spirit such as brandy added to them to boost alcohol content and overall sweetness.If you fancy a small glass of white wine with your Christmas Pudding rather than a glass of sparkling, then this is the way to go. Any goods that are left by our courier according to your instructions and have not been signed for, must be left in a secure place. A key rule when pairing wine with specific tastes is to pair sweet wine with sweet food – but the rule only works if the intensity of sweetness in each component is equal. Glasses and other items have no restrictions but please be aware these are packaged very well to avoid breakages, so postage can be high.
