Semi-sweet wines are versatile and go well with various dishes, including:
- Various desserts, fruits, and pastries;
- Cheese and vegetable platter;
- Meat and fish dishes;
- Bread and toast.
Red semi-sweet wine pairs well with meat dishes, while white semi-sweet wine is perfect for fish dishes. Avoid serving with pickles, citrus fruits, and delicacies with a sour taste. Fortified wines are recommended for dishes with fatty meats, complex composition, and a lot of spices. Seafood, such as oysters, mussels, and snails, pairs well with white wines. Serve semi-sweet wines lightly chilled in classic glasses of up to 400 ml.
