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.
Spiced apple, pear, oak, and butter
Houston's nice fruity light wine
Great dry yet fruity. Light nose but a good bite on the palate that lingers ever so slightly, with soft aromas in the aftertaste. It's a very drinkable wine for every occasion
One of my favorite Chardonnay's ... Deep oak taste, buttery flavor.

A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2008 Mer Soleil Chardonnay Barrel Fermented 750ml
This wine is opulent, rich and creamy, with a core of nectarine, fig, citrus, pineapple and spice supported by firm, lively acidity, finishing long and full. Lovely Chardonnay from a growing California appellation. Drink now through 2005.
So named for the influence of both the sea ("mer") and sun ("soleil") on the grapes, the Mer Soleil perfectly balances the acidity and ripe fruit perfectly, and then tops it all off with a judicious amount of oak. Incredibly rich and creamy, with lots of buttered popcorn, banana cream pie and all sorts of other buttery pastry flavors - it's practically its own dessert!
