Wine hamper fans 'should drink red wine with chocolate'
Published on 11/08/2010

Wine hamper fans that enjoy a tipple with their dessert should opt for red wine if they are consuming chocolate-based puddings, it has been suggested.

According to an article in the Osceola Sentinel-Tribune, white chocolate is best paired with a sweet beverage.

It advised individuals to always cleanse their pallet with bread and water before moving on to provisions made with dark chocolate.

A sweet, fruity Riesling is the ideal accompaniment to fresh fruit or pastry filled with fruit, it stated.

"Cheesecake often goes well with champagne or a light, crisp and bubbly tasting white and any dessert with coconut flavouring takes on a crisp and fresh flavour when served with a sauvignon blanc," the news provider claimed.

Earlier this week, a study revealed wine hamper fans in America have defied the recession.

Figures from the Beverage Information Group's 2010 Wine Handbook found 297 million cases were bought in 2009 - a rise of 0.8 per cent on the previous year.
