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.
Food Pairings for Maldonado "Los Olivos" Napa Chardonnay
Think Kongsgaard for this delicious white. Winemaker Abe Schoener (Scholium Project Oro Puro) is a maverick. Much like his friend and mentor John Kongsgaard Abe looks at vineyards and winemaking from an incredibly creative and interesting point of view. His non-interventionist techniques yield some of the most amazing and intriguing wines to emerge from California. Since the premiere release of the 2002 two years ago comparisons with the likes of Kistler Peter Michael and Marcassin have become so common that it's only a matter of time before this wine is on every serious Chardonnay fan's short list and even on the lists of adventurous lovers of white Burgundy. Barrel fermented rich complex and very balanced. The depth and minerality present in this chardonnay is unusual for California. [320 cases made]
