Claiborne and Churchill Riesling Central Coast Dry Riesling 2005

External Review by Shop Wine Direct:

Wine Tasting NotesWe are impressed by the fruit, length, minerality and the finesse of the vintage. Unmistakable aromas of kaffir lime and white peach greet you from the glass, balancing racy acidity and rich fruit. Although fresh and lovely in its youth, this is unquestionably a wine with the ability to age well under proper cellar conditions, developing nuance and character as it reaches maturity over the next decade or more.

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.
