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 Qupé Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley Y Block Bien Nacido Vineyard
Interesting chardonnay with a hint in both the nose and mouth of burnt minerals and wood. Acid seems to interfere a bit with the flavors. Hint of vanilla in the nose. Mild taste of pear, sour apple, citrus, and the burnt mineral or wood taste. Finish moves from sour citrus to tropical fruit and orange and finally fades to a mineral note.
Great balance with bright acidity are the trademark of this wine. It is barrel fermented in 25% new François Fréres Burgundy barrels which frame the crisp apple and Asian pear flavors with a lovely savory, buttered toast finish.
