These eight pairs of wine and cheese will make you explore the flavours that match with every sip of the most interesting wines in the world.

Malbec and Eldam

This wine-and-cheese combo has aromatic and flavourful characteristics that are not overpowering and result in a great complementary combination of intricate flavours.

Vermentino and Fiore Sardo

The citrus notes of Vermentino and the fatty character of this sheep’s milk cheese enhance one another through their distinct saline flavours.

Chianti Classico and Pecorino Toscano

The secondary notes of the Chianti bring out a herbal flavour in the Pecorino cheese, and the black fruit taste holds up amazingly against Pecorino’s boldness in flavour.

Riesling and Raclette

These German classics blend well with Raclette cheese as the wine’s stone fruit flavours pairs well with the mellow flavours of the cheese.

Provence Rosé and Havarti

The steely minerality of the Provence Rose has a great contrast to the texture of the Havarti cheese which is soft and smooth. The cheese’s mellow flavour also complements the wine excellently.

Cabernet Sauvignon and Aged Cheddar

The matching flavours add up to the complementing character of the Cabernet and the cheddar cheese as the latter brings sweet flavours in that mouth-drying wine.

Sauvignon Blanc and Goat Cheese

The acidity of the Sauvignon Blanc is a great way to cut through the cheese’s heaviness, and it also brings out some nutty and herbal flavours from the goat cheese.

Tempranillo and Idiazabal

These Spanish wine-and-cheese classics blend as they also age together. Both have smoky, savoury flavours that match together amazingly.
