Welcome to week two of Wine Wednesdays! If you missed our first Wine Wednesdays post, we’ve paired up with Kendall-Jackson Wine for a five-part series that pairs one of their wines with a Wilton dessert recipe.
You’ve made it through Monday and Tuesday and if you are looking for a mid-week treat or for something to make this weekend, look no further than this delicious pairing! This week we have paired Wilton’s Cranberry Pear Tarts and Vintner’s Reserve Riesling. Oh, how I love a good Riesling!
This wine is sweet and fruity with some acidic, floral, and spice notes. We found it complements the Cranberry Pear Tarts beautifully, with the sweetness of the wine bringing out the flavors of the tart. The tartness of the cranberry also blends in with the acidic notes of the wine, while spice notes accent the cinnamon and cardamom in the tarts. This pairing is perfect for a small get together since the recipe makes six individual tarts. The tarts are made in this adorable Silicone Mini Tart Set. The beautiful colors are perfect for summer!
