Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

Monte del Frà translates as Hill of Monks and is located in the heart of the Bianco di Custoza DOC. It now consists of over 65 hectares of vineyards owned and run by brothers Eligio and Claudio Bonomo. It is one of the most progressive and dynamic producers in the region and has been particularly innovative in its adoption of modern viticultural techniques. Eligio Bonomo was the first producer in the region to retrain the traditionally 1.6m high cordon vines to lower-trained, single guyot systems. In the winery the Bonomos use thoroughly modern, temperature-controlled fermentation and storage facilities in order to preserve the aromatic freshness in their wines. Ruby red in colour, the nose evokes cherry, morello cherry, spices (pepper), and flowers. The palate is pleasingly velvety, undemanding, elegant, but also savoury. A really well put together wine.
