The late-harvest version of the wine has a higher sugar content than standard riesling. Fresh lime juice offsets the sweetness in our refreshing dessert. Use a combination of any fresh berries you have on hand, including strawberries.


6 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup sorbet and about 1/3 cup berries)
