Dessert Wine

Set Descending Direction

  1. $49.70

    Cave Spring Vineyard

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    2 x 375 ml

    Breads, Sweets, White Meat


    Solidly in the dessert wine camp in this vintage, this checks in at 102 g/L residual sugar. Peach, apricot and ripe nectarine fruit flavors abound, with a drip of honey. It's juicy and big, but never cloying, and finishes with a suggestion of dry straw.

    Big Head

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    Sweets, Tarte tatin


    A pretty dessert and versatile dessert wine. The nose reminds me of yellow things like sugar pear, banana, quince and honey. On the palate, the wine is not too sweet, and there is a refreshing acidity that relieves the sugary pressure almost instantly. This would be perfect with rich dishes like cheese or terrine and could compliment lightly sweetened panna cotta.

    Tawse Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 200 ml

    Chocolate cake, Soft Cheese, Sweets, Tarte tatin


    "Lifted aromas of ripe strawberry and cherry clafoutie drift from this nicely paced, far from cloying, icewine. It coats the palate with a viscous flow of spice-infused nectar of the gods delivered with sweet flavours of red raspberry jelly and hints of cherry cordial along with enough acidity on the finish to be sipped on its own or poured with a fruit flan or chocolate dessert. Drink up now with a good friend on a special occasion, it’s delicious."

  4. $35.95

    Redstone Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 200 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Sweets, Tarte tatin


    "My, oh, my, what a spectacular nose of Swedish berries, raspberry jam, cherry compote and just a hint of earthy/savoury notes. There’s a playful tug of tartness on the palate but then the super sweet honey notes chime in with compoted red berries — jammy but not cloying — with depth, complexity and texture for days. There’s just enough acidity on the finish to offer some balance, but no bones about it, this is a hedonistic treat that will age gracefully for years to come. Cellar 8+ years."

  5. $136.00

    Big Head

    Canada (Canada)

    2 x 375ml

    Sweets, Tarte tatin


    This has the intensity and richness of icewine, complexity of botrytis, and freshness of Riesling. Honey, beeswax, sugar pear and white flower notes with a hint of button mushroom. The wine is sweet, but finishes fresh and stays with you. Have with Pâté or terrine, or Japanese cheesecake.

There is a wide variety of dessert wine types, from the relative newcomer Ice Wine to longtime favourites like Port and Sherry that our grandmothers drank or floral wines like Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Müller-Thurgau or Chenin Blanc. They are some of our favourites at WineOnline.ca.

Ice Wine is the new boy on the Dessert Wine block. And given our weather, Canada is the top Ice Wine producer in the world. As you can imagine, Ice Wine is produced from grapes that have been frozen on the vine. True Ice Wine can only be produced when the vineyard freezes and it must be harvested and pressed while the grapes are still frozen! Consequently Ice Wine tends to be expensive - and usually comes in smaller bottles. You can enjoy Ice Wine on its own or pair it up with chocolate or fresh fruit. Either way - a great excuse to celebrate in style.

Madeira, Port and Sherry are timeless, top dessert wine types. They are traditional wines for celebrating with friends and family on their own or for pairing with chocolate desserts, blue cheeses, walnuts and dried fruit. Madeira was famously used to toast the American Declaration of Independence into existence.

Some of the top dessert wines originate in Bordeaux including Sauternes, Barsac, Cadillac and Monbazillac (made with Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc). The complex and tropical flavours of Sauternes are second to none paired with sweet, fruity desserts like crème brulée or raspberry cheesecake.

There is a wide range of Dessert Wine types and they have been exceedingly popular throughout history. And when you look for wine online, we make sure you have access to some of the top dessert wines available. Enjoy!
