Dessert to go with Ice Wine?
I am looking for dessert ideas to serve with ice wine after dinner?
Then, it's probably Riesling or perhaps Vidal -- that would be my guess . . .
IMHO, both FrankJBN and JaneRI are on the right track: the wine itself is often so sweet that IT becomes the dessert, and the food (e.g.: an almond cake with coffee icing, a serving of Cashel Blue, a hazelnut torte, or even a tiramisu) becomes the foil for the wine, rather than the wine being the foil for the sweet dessert.
Could also be Seyval, especially if from Quebec. And many Ontarian Riesling ice wines are low on acidity, making a pairing with an acidic fruit inadvisable. Vidals work wonderfully with tropical fruit flavours, not so much with nuts. Rieslings are fine with nuts, apples, cheeses including blues. Some are tooth-achingly sweet, others less so, almost semi-sweet. Best to wait and see if loml can provide details about the wine.
I'd skip the dessert, consider the wine itself dessert and pair it w/cheese.
Pair your Ice Wines, BA’s, TBA’s, Sauternes, Tokaji, and Ruster Ausbruch wines with these cheeses:
Bleu des Basques Brebis
Bleu de Sassenage
"I'd skip the dessert, consider the wine itself dessert and pair it w/cheese"
then the wine is not dessert, it is an accompaniment to cheese.
And really, skip dessert?
These wines really are lovely with a nut based or influenced semi-sweet. Mmm, Tokaji with Bavarian Almond Creme. It is the second glass that is dessert.
If a riesling icewine, then think:
The ultimate matches tend to be beautiful fruit tarts, a fruit creme brulee with hint of mint...
Also riesling icewine has a particular affinity for sweet lime & lemon concoctions.... key lime pie, lemon tart, those are all awesome connections....
