Consider the Age of Your Cheese & Wine
Fresh cheese has a high water content that results in a milky, delicate flavour and texture. As cheese ages, moisture evaporates while fats and proteins remain, providing a richer flavour.
Young wines contain aromas and flavours of fruits, flowers, citruses, and spices while older wines acquire additional oak, earth, and mineral flavours.
In cheese and wine pairings, it’s best to serve young cheese with young wine, including sparkling wine, crisp white wine, rosé, or fruity red wine. It also makes sense to pair aged cheese with older red wines which have a complex body and structure.
Pair Sweet with Salty
Think about the perfect snack food and the wonderful combination of the sweet and salty — chocolate covered pretzels or caramel and cheddar popcorn. Follow the same logic when pairing wine and cheese by serving sweet wines with salty cheese.
Also, consider the texture of the cheese and wine you’d like to serve together. When it comes to texture, you can either complement or contrast. To complement textures, pair a rich and creamy cheese with buttery, oaky wines. To play on contrasting textures, serve a rich, hard cheese with a bubbly, sparkling wine.
