Wine Pairings for Desserts

Slide 1 of 7

Granny Smith Apple and Brown Butter Custard Tart

Kate Neumann adds fragrant browned butter to a sweet custard loaded with caramelized apples and baked in a buttery tart shell.

Wine Pairing: Ice wine. Generally made from Riesling, Vidal Blanc or Vignoles grapes harvested after the first winter frost. Silky and rich, ice wines are lusciously sweet and full of concentrated flavor, with a vibrant acidity that keeps them fresh-feeling. They usually pair well with desserts made with fruits such as nectarines, peaches or apples.
