When a stunning dessert meets one of my favourite sweet wines then the rest is history. We were enjoying a fantastic surprise tasting menu at Core by Clare Smyth when it came to dessert. It was then that the Hazelnut Souffle with a Chocolate Sorbet made by talented young chef George arrived and I have to say it was absolutely amazing. But when sommelier Gareth paired this with the Bodegas Bentomiz Ariyanas 2016 I was in dreamland as this is my favourite sweet wine. It’s full of sweetness with flavours of orange , peach , honey that you think your drinking liquid marmalade. So yes this indeed was a match made in heaven.
