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.

External Reviews for Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir
A Pinot Noir wine from Victoria in Australia. 2009 Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir 750ml
The 2008 season, with long warm summer days and cool nights, produced fruit with ideal ripeness and sugar balance. Vineyard sites are selected for their high diurnal temperature range, resulting in wines with high natural acidity and low pH. All fruit was hand harvested. This super Pinot has a nose of dark cherries, cranberry juice, fresh raspberries, nutmeg, cinnamon, truffles, with underlying meaty, wet earth and mushroom characters. The palate is juicy, succulent fresh berries with a slippery, rich and slightly tart finish. Pair this with char grilled quail and rosemary, Peking duck pancakes or prosciutto.
