“The experience of this sweet life.”
“L’esperienza de questa dolce vita.” — Dante Alighieri
What wine to pair with dessert? It’s always a bit of a challenge, as most wines don’t have the residual sugar content to stand up to the sweetness. Wine Harlots go to is Sandeman Tawny Ten Year Old Porto, with it’s rich flavors of berries, caramel, vanilla and nuts it’s almost a dessert in it’s self, but today we paired it a slice of Snickers Cake, with the chocolate, caramel and nuts perfectly complementing the Port. Music to complement the Porto? We suggest “Sweet Escape” from Gwen Stefani.
