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 Spier Merlot Pvt Collection
Grown in selected vineyard blocks that have proved to yield rich varietal character, the grapes were picked at optimum ripeness. Temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks involved intensive extraction practices. Following alcoholic fermentation, the wine was transferred to oak barrels. Judicious maturation for 16 months in French oak barrels ensured that the fruit is not overpowered by excessive oak flavours.
Dark, ripe plum in colour, clear and brilliant, with a purple edge indicating youth and good bottle maturation potential. Inviting aromas of cigar box, vanilla, spice, chocolate, mint and wild mulberry follow through on the palate where a touch of caramel from the oak adds to the complexity.
