Appellation: VQA Niagara Escarpment
Cheese Pairing: Chendre des press
Cendre des Pres is a soft bloomy rind cheese done in a Camembert style. Visually striking it sports a clean blue line of maple ash running horizontally through the paste. Snow white at the rind and creamy at the paste, this cheese does not just look the part but is a fabulous addition to any cheese plate. Aromatics show buttery cream and fresh washed cremini mushroom. One bite and you know why a baguette would be heaven! It is like taking a swipe of farm fresh butter, only perfectly spreadable with wonderful mushroom nuances. This North Pinot Blanc is a MUST for this summer! Bright, young acidity, and a slight nod to the effervescent pave the way to star fruit, honeydew and citrus. The musky aromas leave you wanting to listen to a dusky version of my funny valentine. This wine provides the contrast needed to liven up your palate after each
Tip: Le Cendre de Pres and Camembert style cheeses will compliment young aromatic white wine most admirably.
