Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

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.

User Reviews for Weiser Kunstler Gaispfad Grosse Eule Riesling

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 'Grosse Eule,' which translates to 'Great Owl' in German, is the playful name the estate uses for its 'Grosse Gewächs,' or Grand Cru dry Riesling. Weiser-Künstler, although they farm arguably some of the greatest vineyards in the Mosel, are not in the VDP and thus cannot call any wine they make a 'Grosses Gewächs.' The flavor profile feels warmer and saltier, as if watercress, cashews and orange rind were all mashed up together. There's something that meaty about the wine. On the palate there is a round fruit, complicated and nervous and dense and compact, but it shows its ripeness through the juicy-fruit midpalate, a kiwi-mango-and-pear-and-green-apple combination that is quirky and complicated...and fun." -Importer
