Dessert Wine & Fortified Wine
It used to be that if you drank wine in Australia you were drinking a sweet fortified or dessert wine. In the 70s and 80s, tastes began to evolve but dessert wines still play an important role in the canon of Australian wine making. Fortified wines are high in sugar and high in alcohol content so are generally very sweet and sticky, pairing well with desserts or even working as a standalone after-dinner drink. Popular styles of fortified wine include Port, Sherry, Tawny and Muscat. France and Portugal are well-regarded as dessert wine producers but Australia is also famous for its fortified varieties.
