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.

One of my favorite Chard's despite it's less than 90 rating by Connoisseurs' Guide, Feb 08 (they gave it an 85). Wine Spectator gave it a 90. I give it a two thumbs up! Bright inviting straw color. Pear and floral with a slight toasty oak overtone. Velvety medium body with a lingering finish of buttery vanilla that makes me think of buttered popcorn. I love it.

Tight and still a bit coarse in texture, showing a spicy, subtle citrus, green apple and pear focus, with hints of hazelnut on the finish. Gains complexity. This is worthy of short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2012. 1,500 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2005 Sterling Vineyards Reserve Chardonnay 750ml

Quarterly Review of Wine ReviewIs marked by toasty oak nuances supporting bright, ripe apple and pear-like fruit perceptions. All winemaking techniques have come together in a seamless whole with attractive aromatics and rich, creamy mouthfeel.Wine Tasting NotesThe Sterling Reserve Chardonnay is a brilliant golden straw color. The wine opens with an inviting bouquet of ripe pear, apple pie, toasty/smoky oak and caramel with slight floral overtones. A soft, creamy entry is followed by flavors of caramel apple, ripe pear, honey and hazelnuts. This rich, complex wine is wonderful with baked salmon in dill cream sauce and with tarragon chicken.
