Strawberries and Oranges with Vanilla-Scented Wine

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Melanie J. Clarke and Jan Gautro

Late-harvest Riesling is sweeter than other Rieslings. If you can't find it, try an equally sweet dessert wine such as Sauternes, Muscat, or late-harvest Gewürztraminer. Prepare and chill this refreshingly light dessert earlier in the day. If hosting a baby shower, honor the mom-to-be with a nonalcoholic version using white grape juice in place of the wine.
