Email  Print
Category: Wine
Alc/vol: 13.5% to 18%

Are made by partially fermenting grape juice, then adding alcohol to stop the fermentation. This leaves a lot of unfermented sugar and makes the wine sweet. The color varies from golden yellow to dark amber and deep red. Fortified wines are produced world wide. Best enjoyed chilled straight up as a cocktail or lightly chilled to room temperature with dessert. Some fortified wines also go well with blue cheeses.
