Cake can be tricky to pair with wine thanks to its high levels of sweetness, but Rob Buckhaven has found some gems to enjoy with baked treats
1 The Sticky
Sainsbury’s Muscat de St Jean de Minervois (£4.79 for 375ml) adds layers of apricot to fruit cake.
This wine is so famous the French town where it’s produced changed its name to match it.
2 The Sparkler
Freixenet Cordon Oro (£9.49, Co-op) bathes sponge cake in sweet custard-apple flavour.
This fizz was produced in response to our growing love of sweeter-style wines.
3 The Fortified
Graham’s LBV Port (£9.97, Asda) is a velvety treat with chocolate cake.
Port gets its name from the country of Portugal, in which by law it must be produced.
