Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaking Our on going heritage and knowledge of sparkling winemaking is put to full use in this wine. This Chardonnay was hand harvested and whole cluster pressed using only the gentlest of sparkling wine methods. This step is critical to give us all of the great fruit flavor developed in the vineyard without any of the harshness that comes from rough handling. This wine was 50% barrel fermented with sur lees stirring and aging and partially stainless steel fermented (also with lees stirring) to achieve a nuanced balance of fruit, lees and barrel character. Half of this wine has undergone a secondary malolactic fermentation to enhance its buttery creaminess. Tasting Notes Lemon blossoms, green apple, ripe pineapple and honeydew melon are front and center in this Chardonnay. This crisp fruitiness is combined with nuances of vanilla topped cream brulee, butter, and toasted oak making this wine both easy to enjoy and seductively complex. Silky supple with lingering flavors, yet a tingle of crisp acid on the finish; a great accompaniment for food and friends. Alcohol content, 14.3% by volume
