I am commissioned to take part in a novel wine tasting party next week in which each couple brings a wine, researches it and an appetizer to accompany. I am to take an ice wine. What would be a good accompaniment other than a dessert?

Ice wine (or icewein) can certainly pair with other foods than desserts. Anything salty, like nuts, olive tapenade, or an antipasto platter with hard cheeses (parmeggiano-reggiano, etc . ) and cured meats will go well with an ice wine–the clean, refreshing apple and pear flavors and crisp acidity will cleanse the palate of the saltiness.
