Almond tart

Jukes Wine And Food Puddings Almond Tart

Despite its heavenly flavour and fantastic texture, this dish needs careful handling on the wine front, as an overbearing sweet wine would crush the delicate almondy nuances. Lighter, youthful sweeties like Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise, Muscat de Rivesaltes, Moelleux (sweet) Loire whites and Jurançon Moelleux would all be spot on. Stick to these styles if your almond tart has fresh fruit on top. Bakewell tart, while perhaps not as elegant as a fresh fruit tart, likes these sweeties, too, but you’d be well advised to go for a little more age on a sweet Loire wine or head to Australia for a similar styled Botrytised Semillon.
