Our Wine Recommendation
Sweet and sweet are a pleasure to join – especially when the dessert is creamy. Therefore, you should definitely choose one of the dessert wines as a companion for the spice-rice pudding. The Waterford The Family Heitherleigh is a blend of Sémillon and Muscat d’ Alexandrie whose aromas are defined by dried apricots and softly underlined by the scent of nutmeg and vanilla. The Neethlingshof The Maria 2017 has been awarded with The Michelangelo Gold and convinces also with fruity aromas which are surrounded by sweet honey nuances.
