Serving Cheddar Gorge Cheese
The delicate and softer notes in this cheddar will benefit from not being overwhelmed by flavours that are too bold. As a result, lighter style reds such as Bordeaux make a good pairing. Equally a white wine with a character such as a Sauvignon Blanc would go very well. Similarly, lighter ales and even a crisp cider make good bedfellows.
