Jordan Vineyard & Winery Chardonnay Russian River Valley 1998
Cool, handpicked grapes were barrel fermented in 100% French Oak; 30% new barrels to develop the balanced integration of the flavors from the toasty oak with vibrant flavors from the fruit. Partial malolactic fermentation preserved the natural acidity while imparting a creamy character to the wine and extended sur lie contact added further complexity and richness. The wine remained in French oak barrels for six months before being bottled and aged for one year before release.
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.
