Santa Rita 120 Chardonnay 2012
120 Sauvignon Blanc is a refreshing, fruity, and balanced wine. The nose offers an enjoyable balance of citrus and tropical fruit, along with the herbal notes typical of this variety. The presence of 2% Semillon boosts the fruit sensation, lending the wine pleasant, persistent and balanced aromas and flavors.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
