Athair Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2012

Member Review by Matt Walker:

Another great wine from Athair and again a wonderful value. Very well balanced, bright tree fruit juxtaposed with marshmallow and dulce de leche. Precise acidity plus a lengthy finish.

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.

What a great light hearted Chardonnay! Saralee's Vineyard continues to produce wonderful fruit and Athair winemaker, Jim McMahon, has done another great job producing a light, yet complex fruit forward Chardonnay. The bartlett pear really comes out with just a light spice at the finish. This is a wonderful bottle of wine that is nice on its own or complementing a meal. Very reasonably priced for the quality.
