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.

Notes on the Qupe Viognier Ibarra Young Vineyard 2007 Half-Size Btl. : 375ML Half BottleWINEMAKER NOTES: It was bottled with all its freshness in February 2007. Often, when I show people this wine they assume it was done in stainless steel because of its freshness, verve and acidity. They assume that I blocked the malo as well. The key here is the site for this varietal, relatively cool climate, and picking at a reasonably low sugar level while the pH is still low and the acid high. Viognier grapes are wonderfully aromatic in the vineyard and many winemakers are seduced by those aromatics and pick too ripe resulting in high alcohol, flat tasting wines. I like those aromatics too, but I prefer balance, acidity, alcohols under 14% (the 06 is 13.7%) and the minerality that accompanies this style. This is not a wine to age although it can. I recently pulled out a 1994 for Yves Cuilleron and Franois Villard and they were impressed. I like viognier when its young and freshdrink this before the 2007 comes along.
