Wine pairings: vanilla pannacotta, raspberry & rhubarb compote, pecan biscotti

In the third part of our wine pairings series we’re moving onto one of our new puddings, vanilla pannacotta with raspberry & rhubarb compote and a pecan biscotti.


The dish
A refreshing end to any meal, our vanilla pannacotta is drizzled with a syrupy sweet raspberry and rhubarb compote, and it’s this sweetness that we’ve picked out in a dessert wine.

The wine
Inspired by the sweet raspberry compote, we’ve selected Elysium Black Muscat, a rich and full-flavoured dessert wine. With a background in making fireworks, Andy Quady has even more character than his wines, and this bottle is an exquisite match for our vanilla pannacotta. Buy a half bottle and it will last you through to the cheese course, another perfect pairing for this fruity wine.
