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.
Food Pairings for Domaines Schlumberger Riesling Alsace Grand Cru Aoc Saering
100% Riesling mainly planted in the Bollenberg plot grown on volcanic sandstone. Slowly pressed pneumatically. Static settling of the lees. Fermented in temperature controlled tuns from 1 to 4 months. Raised on the lees for 6 to 8 months. A brilliant pale yellow color with a little bit of legs. Medium + aroma intensity with lime, grapefruit, apple, pear, apricot and pronounced petrol minerality and little hints of flint and white pepper on the finish. Medium acidity, long dry finish, medium + flavor intensity, medium + body, well balanced, fairly complex and good quality. I really liked the richness this wine has probably due to the extended lees contact. Another good food friendly Riesling, try matching spicy Asian, Indian, and Latin food as well as charcuterie. 3.5/5

Tasting Notes: Riesling, a dry yet lively wine with a racy acidity, is considered the noble grape of the Alsatian varietals. It is very different to its German counterpart and to the numerous Rieslings which are now appearing around the world. The Alsace Riesling is better known for the elegant balance of acidity and fruit. It is a late maturing varietal and continues to mature even at quite low temperatures with wonderful results when the vintage ends with a warm and sunny harvest month.This is a beautiful example of a high quality Riesling that is fruity, dry and robust. It will enhance all simply-prepared dishes and fish, as well as meat. It may easily be cellared three to four years, but is enjoyable now.
