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.
Food Pairings for Williams Selyem Chardonnay Russian River Valley Hawk Hill
Sophisticated, rich style of chardonnay. Amber color--dark for a chard. Notes of caramel, toffee, and apple. Whiff of alcohol on the nose, but doesn't overwhelm the overall experience.
Roasted nuts, mocha and citrus blossom dominate the aromas in this wine. The extended barrel aging has made the mouth-feel creamy and lush with a toffee element. The naturally high acidity gives this wine a long Meyer lemon and wet stone/mineral flavor in the finish. A wine that definitely benefits from several years of cellaring.
Aged 16 months.
