3 Great Wine Pairings with Dessert

Laurita Winery 🕔June 24, 2015 0 comments


We’ve already told you about some excellent summer wine pairings and we hope you were able to enjoy them. Now, comes the desserts. One important thing to remember when choosing a dessert wine is that the wine should be just as sweet as the dessert, with enough acidity for balance. The best dessert wines are typically late-harvest; that is, made from grapes left on the vine past regular picking times to build sugar levels.

Blueberry or Raspberry Cheesecake With Laurita’s Tailgate Red


It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, because chances are you love dessert. Guilty or not, there’s nothing more tantalizing than cheesecake. Combine this with wine and you’ve just made your palate extremely happy. A good pairing would be Laurita’s Tailgate Red.  Its hints of sweet berries are practically screaming to to be paired with a berry cheesecake.

Strawberry Shortcake with Laurita’s Strawberry Delight


Easy to prepare and even easier to eat, strawberry shortcake is always a good choice. But if you really want to indulge (and why wouldn’t you?), then we highly recommend pairing this delectable dessert with Laurita’s Strawberry Delight. It just so happens that we’re smack dab in the middle of strawberry season, which means there’s no greater time to enjoy this lovely wine.

Black Raspberry Chocolate Cake with Laurita’s Merlot 2013


This is a dessert and wine pairing that we can’t help but think would make Homer Simpson salivate as he slowly muttered its name. This is a dessert that demands to be thoroughly enjoyed so It’s useless to resist. And when it comes to washing down this dessert, there’s no better wine than Laurita’s Merlot 2013. Its dark and earthy minerals and tightly wound fruit and bracing acidity makes for a most excellent pairing for this dessert. Your palate will thank you!
