Sweet & Fortified Wine

Sweet wines are mainly made by encouraging the growth of Botrytis cinerea, a type of fungus that shrivels wine grapes also known as ‘noble rot’. PortMadeira and Sherry are fortified with spirits which stops the fermentation, the first two being sweet while the latter is fermented dry. Most are made to be enjoyed after a meal or with cheese or dessert, but some work well as an aperitif.
