Sweet tasting wine?!

Question: Sweet tasting wine!?
Does anyone know of a wine that is sweet tasting!? My husband wants to take me out on a date to a real nice restaurant!.

Thing is I don't drink, and last time I tried the wine was bitter and tasted horrible to me!. Anyone know of wines that are sweet and what is the price of it, so I can do a test run at home!.


For wines, normally the higher the content of "older" grapes (grapes which have been on the vine longer) the higher the sugar content!. Yes, there are clearly exceptions to this general rule, but for identification of sweeter wines this general rule is very effective!.

The content of "older" grapes is easier to identify in wines from Germany or Hungary than it is in French or Italian wines!. American wines do not have an effective method of identification!.

German wines with a "spatlese" (my computer will not allow an appropriate umlaut, so the spelling for the German terms are not correctly spelled, but should be sufficient to allow you to look at the bottle and comprehend the differences), "auslese," "trockenauslese" are sweet, sweeter, and sweetest respectively!. The most sweet German wine, that is the wine with the highest consentration of "older grapes" is "eiswein!."

The sweetness Hungarian "tokai" wines, often used for fruit and cheese presentations as opposed to a wine with a meal, can be determined by the number of "putano" (again, the spelling is a rough translation) in the wine!. In Hungarian "tokai" wine production, older grapes are placed in separate baskets ("putano")!. The sweetness of the wine is determined by the relative number of "putano" added to the batch!. On the neck of Hungarian "tokai" wines there is normally a number, between 1 and 7, with the higher the number the more "putano" in the batch!. I have to admit, I have never tasted anything higher than a 5 "putano" bottle, which I considered very sweet!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Barefoot Moscato is a really nice light, sweet wine!. Hints of pineapple and pear!.

Or Bartenura Moscato is another good one!. Bartenura is a little more expensive than the Barefoot but both are very good!. The barefoot usually sells for 6!.99 and the Bartenura for 13!.99

Moscatos aren't the most well known varietal but once people try it they looovvvveee it!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Look for a white wine called "Gewurtztraminer"
There will be many brands but Gewurtz is the grape and that is the key!. This wine is often paired with e!.g!. Thai food because it has enough sweetness to cut through spicier foods, but without being sickly sweet!.
Pricewise it would be on a par with Chardonnay etc!.
Good luck with your test runs!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Rieslings, Gwerztermeher (sp) are great!. Stick with whites cheap reds can leave a bad taste in your mouth!. Beyond these two Sauvignon Blanc is also great!. It tends to have a citrus like taste and very fresh!.

The Ports and Ice Wines are dessert wines so recommend only after dinner!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I don't like tartness of wine either!. Try a pinot grigio or a dessert wine!. Either of those will taste much sweeter!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

red!.!.!.lambrusco, port
whte, riesling!.(blue nun is a good starter), gewurtztraminer, rhine
most blush or rose wines are on the sweet side!.,Www@FoodAQ@Com

If you can find it, try giving ice wine a try - its much sweeter than normal wines!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
