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 Sandhi Chardonnay Sanford and Benedict
"Cool, mineral notes dominate Sandhi’s 2010 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict. Today, the 2010 comes across as tightly wound and quite implosive, but my sense is it just needs time to emerge. The flavors and textures are decidedly pointed, with hints of lemon, white flowers, spices and crushed rocks. A subtle touch of botrytis-like sweetness adds complexity on the finish...93" WA 8/12 "Light, bright gold. Ripe citrus and orchard fruits on the nose and palate, with notes of honey and white flowers adding complexity. Sappy, concentrated lemon curd and pear flavors expand with air and pick up spice and mineral nuances. Closes on a juicy note, with impressive cling and lingering spiciness. I like this chardonnay's blend of heft and vivacity....92" IWC 11/12
