Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

The historical sweet desert wine. Harvested grapes are spread out in the sun to dry until their sugar density reaches 19-23 Baume. Once achieved, the grapes are crushed and fermented until the process stops naturally due to the high sugar content. The must is then aged in oak barrels for a minimum of two years. Similar to the solera system, the barrels are never completely emptied. New juice is added to the barrel containing old juice and the process begins again. St. John Commandaria is a sweet wine with a powerful bouquet filled with dried fruits, spices and oak. It is luscious and full-bodied.--Winemaker Notes

This traditional dessert wine is considered to be the oldest named wine still in production. Grapes that are indigenous to the island of Cyprus are picked late and dried on mats, in order to obtain maximum concentration and sweetness. Produced by the Solera system, this is a nutty wine with aromas of cocoa and baking spices.
