Wine Pairings for Desserts

Slide 3 of 7

Nutty Toffee-Date Cake

The cake, subtly spiced with cinnamon and ginger, gets topped with toasted nuts and a caramelly toffee sauce.

Wine Pairing: Tokaji. A Tokaji's sweetness is measured in puttonyos, the Hungarian word for a basket used in Tokaji's production; the scale runs from three to six. Tokajis go particularly well with anything caramelized, such as a tarte Tatin, or desserts with dates, nuts or figs.
