Best Wine of the World Sweet

Best Wine of the World Sweet

Throughout the history of wine ratings, sweet wines have always been the top performer. According to Andreas Larsson, they are more of an essence of wine. They achieve a higher concentration, a higher complexity, and a higher intensity. They can age forever. Yet, he is quick to point out that a great sweet wine is always on a different level.

“For example, the Tokaj Pendits, is one of the most unique wine style in the world,” says Andreas. “I am so impressed by it because it shows a lot of personality and character. It has typicity for the region and the grape varieties. It also has a lot of extract and tannin,that gives it another dimension in terms of structure.”

The problem according to Andreas is that most people do not know how to serve a sweet wine. The wines are much more complex and can be used in aperitifs with starters, main dishes, and cheese. Sometimes it is a shame to spoil these rare drops with a sticky dessert.

A sweet wine that Andreas could not resist was the Bürgerspital Würzburger Abtsleite 2011 which got 97 points. According to Robert Macgregor the Export Manager, this wine’s excellence comes from small yields and the balance of fruit, sweetness, and acidity. “Our Würzburger Abtsleite Eiswein was exceptional, picked in Feb after the harvest, while it was extremely cold but with very small yields. We have used this award for press reviews and sent the videos nationally and internationally. The wine was quickly sold out in Germany, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Taiwan, and Japan.”

We are looking forward to seeing which sweet wine Andreas will reward in the next competition. Do you think you have one of the Best Wines in the World? If so apply now to the contest here.
