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.

nice bright acidity. this can be paired with shrimp cocktail or just quaffed. it's got the zest that seems like sparkling but it ain't. killer. and at $8 it's a steal. definitely on the sweet side.

Elegant and approachable, this Chardonnay has appealing lemon and lime flavors, with hints of vanilla. Delicate peach nuances linger on the crisp, dry finish.

A medium-bodied Chardonnay with a pale golden color, fruity aromas, and floral honey notes to round out the apple and lemon-lime flavors. With its creamy texture, this would be perfect with a dish like shrimp étouffée.
