Dessert wine, Pudding wine, stickyâ¦no matter what the moniker,
the sweet nectar of the gods have always held a special place at
the dinner table (and in our gluttonous hearts). Some may have a
penchant for the ancient method of air dried grapes, utilized in
Vin Santo and Pedro Ximenez, others preferring the thrilling
unpredictability of achieving just the right conditions required to
produce German or Canadian Eiswein, and still others are loyal to
the ânoblestâ of all sweet wines reached through botrytis (or noble
rot), most famously used in Sauternes and Tokaj.
