Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
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.

Dry and racy, with a very chiseled feel to the powdered ginger, fig and pear flavors, with a bracing edge on the finish. Still rather tightly drawn now, this should unfurl nicely with some cellaring. Best from 2013 through 2018. -JM Wine Spectator. A Chenin Blanc wine from Loire Valley in France. 2010 Haut Lieu (Gaston Huet), Domaine le Vouvray le Mont Sec 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): ...The beautiful and youthful nose jumps from the glass in a mlange of quince, tart pear, gentle notes of honeycomb, a touch of orange zest, pink grapefruit, beautifully complex soil tones and white flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with ripe acids, laser-like focus and stunning length and grip on the youthful and dancing finish... 2020-2075+. (Jan/Feb 2012)
