Which Wine Goes best With Ice Cream?

Which Wine Goes best With Ice Cream?

Our Favourite Wine Pairings With Ice Cream

Although it’s not a classic match, wine and ice cream is the ultimate indulgence. Believe it or not, these two can actually make a delicious pairing. Pairing wine and ice cream isn’t a difficult task at all as long as you don’t forget a few useful tips.

 

Ice cream and wine delicious pairing suggestions

 

It is simple, there are two rules to remember:

  • Make sure wine is sweeter than your ice cream. It’s a perfect excuse to break out some dessert wines.
  • Avoid high tannin wines (like those listed here) This shouldn’t be much of a problem if you’re sticking with dessert wines, but it’s worth noting!

 

SORBETS

For fruity sorbets flavoured with peach, lemon, or even tropical flavours like mango and passion fruit, serve yourself a glass of lightly sparkling Moscato d’Asti or sweet style Italian Asti.  These aromatic Italian wines share stone fruit and exotic fruit flavours, making a brilliant pairing.

CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM

Love a cheeky bowl of chocolate ice cream? A ruby or LBV port is perfect for you, especially if you throw a few fresh berries in as a garnish.

Tawny port is lovely with salted caramel and toffee ice creams.

 

MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP ICE CREAM

Cool mint chocolate is especially refreshing during summer a fruity, ultra-ripe or preferably late harvest red blend is delicious. You can also go in the other direction and opt for a sparkling Shiraz – just be sure to check its sweetness levels.

FRENCH VANILLA

Classic French vanilla gives you free reign to drink whatever you’d like. However the best piece of advice would be to try various styles of dessert wine , for example, late harvest dessert wine.

By the way, in case you are eating a pistachio Ice-cream, you can still stick to a late harvest dessert wine. It in is, in fact, a brilliant option for many desserts.

 

Here’s a little tip: you can even pour a little wine over your ice cream to add an extra oomph to each bite.
