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 Frei Bros Russian River Chard
Interesting portrayal of this famous variety. Typical Chardonnay nose with hints of oak and vanilla. Strikingly sweet taste with hints of tropical fruit and crispiness similar to that of a pinot grio. Very easy drinking wine the reminds me of sitting outside in the sun in summertime.

External Reviews for Frei Bros Russian River Chard
Made in an immediately appealing, oaky way, this Chard has appealing peach, pear, green apple and honey flavors that tastes like they were baked into a pie. Easy to find, with more than a million bottles in circulation.
The 2007 Chardonnay reveals some oak along with plenty of tropical fruit, and a steely background character. Reminiscent of an exuberant French Macon, it should be drunk over the next several years.
This is a well-made, mid-weight Chardonnay with hints of orange zest, hazelnut, and some white currants in a medium-bodied, fresh, lively style with a subtle influence of wood. Drink it over the next year.
Polished and sophisticated, with lush green apple, pineapple, buttered toast and cinnamon flavors. Likeable for its balance and sheer drinkability.
A racy white, with ripe, lively pear, citrus, honeydew melon and hints of clove and nutmeg. Well-focused on the fruit, which it keeps at the forefront. Drink now through 2008.
Rich in well-ripened fruit flavors and with a sweet coat of smoky oak and vanilla, this Chard also has a structural integrity based on crispness and vitality. It's not a soft, creamy Chard, but a firm one, with exotic fruit.
A solid Chardonnay that will satisfy fans of the variety. It's a sleekly tart, streamlined wine, with vanilla oak and buttered toast influences acting on the pineapples and green apples. Finishes a little sweet, but crisp.
At Frei Brothers Winery, we craft wines in a gentle, traditional style enhanced by the use of modern techniques to produce a wine that is both varietally accurate and reflective of the terroir of the Russian River Valley. Our Chardonnay grapes are whole cluster pressed to eliminate bitterness and maximize fresh fruit characters. The wine completed malolactic fermentation, which resulted in a lush texture and deep, layered flavors that express the terroir of the Russian River Valley.
Our 2009 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is soft and complex. It reflects its cool climate source with flavors of green apple, orange zest, and apple pie, which are complemented by buttery and toasty notes. With nutty and rich flavors, the wine finishes with a silky, full mouthfeel.
