The pairing of wine and cheese is one of life’s great culinary pleasures. However, with any wine and food pairing, finding the right match can be tricky. Here, Kris Lloyd of Woodside Cheese Wrights shares her winning combinations for the perfect wine and cheese match.
Perfect with shiraz
Perfect with cabernet
"I like to pair cab sav with a cheese that has a bit of age similar to that of the wine. Ideally an aged gouda, cheddar or Swiss alpine style such as comte works well - in fact they’re delicious."
Qantas Wine recommends Chalk Hill Alpha Crucis Titan Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Cheese: Kris Lloyd Artisan Just Cheese
Perfect with grenache
"I like to see this light and fruity quintessentially meditteranean wine paired with a semi-hard buffalo cheese. Our Picasso, coated in Australian Native Saltbush, with its slightly brothy notes is ideal."
Perfect with Chardonnay
Perfect match sauvignon blanc
