Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

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.

Sweet with dried fruit, sweet herbs, and coffee on the nose lifted by some VA. Open on entry though a bit soft and hollow up front. The fruit is still here, black currant framed with roasted peppers, and this firms up a bit on the back end finishing with good length and some elegance to the earthy toned finale but it never fully pulls itself together. 88pts

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Connoisseurs' Guide: In this hit-and-miss vintage that was not much heralded after the seemingly awesome trio of 1984 to 1986, Spottswoode has come up with an absolute masterpiece and easily its best wine of the entire 1980s decade. At twenty years old, it still has good color, plenty of vigor and richness, evident currant and loam aromas and a deep, solid, balanced structure in support of its ripe yet refined flavors. This one has a decade of perfect service in front of it and may last for years beyond that point. (Apr 2007)
