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.
Editorial Reviews for Kunde Chardonnay Sonoma
Light and fresh on the nose with notes of sweet pear, peach and lime gently topped with touches of herb, anise, and gentle smoky wood spice. On entry this is quite delicate and elegant with a lush, round feel showing lovely integration. The flavors are a bit spicier than the aromas with polished, vanilla tinged notes of crisp apple and peach. The finish shows that touch of anise again with a long gentle feel to the lime and peach toned finale. 91pts
buttered popcorn aromas combined with nuances of pear and rich vanilla. the palate extends to oak, pear, juicy golden apples, textured round mouth feel and fairly full in body.
External Reviews for Kunde Chardonnay Sonoma
Bright, lively and refreshing, with zesty pear, nutmeg, citrus and tangerine notes. Drink now through 2004.
Ripe and full-bodied with tiers of fruit flavors ranging from green apples and peaches to pears and mango. None-too-subtle oak adds vanilla, smoke and butterscotch elements. Just enough residual sugar for it to drink a bit like an orange-vanilla milk shake.
Kundersquo;s winemaker tasting notes liken their estate Chardonnay to a cinnamon bun, which threw me off at first. Upon further reflection, however, I started to think, ldquo;well, I guess it is.rdquo; This wine is rich and creamy, with yeasty bread dough aromas and distinct cinnamon notes, and peeking out beneath the buttery oak are crisp apple, guava and banana flavors. The smooth and mellow finish is substantial and lingering, making the Kunde a definite winner in the $10 California Chardonnay category!
Another sweet, oaky Chardonnay joins the ever-growing line. Not that itrsquo;s an indifferent wine. This family produces nothing but impeccably tailored wines, and this one is among the best of class at this price point.
A lively style, with fresh floral, peach and nectarine flavors that finish with a touch of citrus. Little in the way of oak. Drink now.
Marked by pleasant earthy citrus and green fruit notes, with crisp apple and honeydew melon character, this medium- to full-bodied wine ends with a clean aftertaste. Drink now through 2015.
Herersquo;s a big, ripe, creamy, oaky Chardonnay. The oak stars, contributing flamboyant vanilla, char and woody spices, but therersquo;s plenty of fruit flavor ranging from apples and peaches all the way to papayas.
“Referring to a grape like Chardonnay as “white” doesn’t do it justice. The beautiful blocks used to craft the 2008 Kunde Reserve Chardonnay grow in bunches with small, luscious globes that turn a beautiful golden color when ripe. They look so wonderful that you want to pop them in your mouth! But it took barrel fermentation to fully unlock all the beautiful apple and floral scents of this wine, which also added flavors of bread dough, cinnamon and nutmeg. Poached salmon with a creamy Dijon dill sauce is a treat you might want to try with this delicious wine. You can almost taste the sun in the golden wine that could only come from Kunde’s Sonoma Valley Vineyards.”
