We’ve selected the perfect pairings for our cheese and charcuterie platters, with a little help from our friends at Le Caveau.
Rioja Crianza, Grimon (Spain)
Hacienda Grimon Rioja Crianza (85% Tempranillo with Graciano) is a rigorous selection of grapes from 3 different vineyard parcels. The wine is aged for 16 months in French & American oak. Aromas of black fruits with black pepper and sweet spices. Palate is quite full bodied for a Crianza due to the quality of fruit used and longer than average ageing in oak. The ripe tannins and fresh acidity balance the richness of the fruit which results in an elegant and classy Rioja, a serious Crianza and cut above most others you will try.
Angiolino Maule, La Biancara, Masieri Rosso (Italy)
Dark cherry, violet hints. Aroma of cherry and blackberry, herbs, spices. Lightly structured, luscious and delicate, fruit all the way. Just lovely! Masieiri Rosso is a blend of varying amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and sometimes Tocai Rosso and Lagrein depending on the year.
A new favourite in the KD HQ!
Clos Tue-Boeuf, Vin Blanc (France)
This wine shows ripe aromas of pear, fig, almond, lemon confit, fines herbes and stone. The palate is ripe and round but balanced by firm acidity and mineral flavors framing the ripe white fruits. The finish is long and juicy with bright acidity and chalky minerals.
100% Sauvignon Blanc.
CHAUME-ARNAUD, Côtes du Rhône blanc (France)
Complex on nose and palate with peach, pear, flowery notes, exotic fruits, candied lemons, nougat, gingerbread and spice with a lushly textured mouthfeel. Bright fresh acidity and a mineral finish.
Corte Alta, Prosecco (Italy)
Corte Alta is a text-book, soft, well-made Prosecco which delivers subtle scents of white fruit and flowers. The palate has lovely, fresh notes of apple, pear and peach wrapped up in a light, refreshing fizz.
