Wine Pairing with Hummingbird Cupcakes

Natalie at Natalie's Killer Cuisine has published a recipe for Hummingbird Cupcakes. This was included in today's Foodbuzz Top 9. Check it out at

Now that is a tasty dessert! My wine pairing suggestion would be a Late Harvest or Ice Wine style from the Vidal grape. I have had several of these from the Ontario, Canada and Finger Lakes, NY regions. The stone fruit (peach, apricot) and honey flavors will meld well with the banana, coconut and pineapple. The sweetness in the wine shouldn't be off balance with the sweetness in the cupcakes, but if less sugar were used (if you are concerned about such things?!?) I might suggest the Late Harvest over the Ice Wine as it might be just a little bit less sweet and not knock out the cake.
