ISO dessert wine for a specific dessert

c oliver | Jun 6, 2011 01:03 PM

I'm going to be serving a vanilla ice cream with some Meyer lemon olive oil drizzled over it and a light sprinkling of sea salt. I'm not wine knowledgeable at all and wonder if dessert wines are even appropriate for these types of non-sweet flavors. I have a pear liqueur, Pear de Pear by RMS Distillery and a Graff Family Vineyards, 2007 Chalone, July Muscat. Have also wondered about a sparkling rose'. And, of course, can buy something else. Or should I just continue with whatever red wine I wind up serving with dinner. There will be six of us. Is a half bottle enough for six? This won't be a large serving of dessert. I appreciate your help. It always frightens me a tad to come over to the "dark side." J/K of course :)
