Sweet stuff

budnball | Sep 1, 2013 12:15 PM

My better half does not care for port but enjoys the sweet stuff, so I have been gifting my half my collection, and replacing them with 375ml bottles of other dessert wines. My recent favs have been a Robert Mondavi Moscato D'Oro, a Chateau Roumieu-Lacoste 2010 Sauternes, and Dr Loosen 2009 Riesling Eiswein. That last was in a tiny 187 ml bottle but so tasty. A strong acidity seems to be the common element in these wines.

What are your favorite non port dessert wines?
