In a nutshell wine is classified as an astringent food due to the acidity and tannin content, and cheese is classified as a fatty food due to its high fat and high protein content. When pairing astringent foods with fatty foods, they oppose one another to create a perfectly balanced mouthfeel.

We have selected an assortment of top quality cheeses from local and international producers to enhance your pairing experience. We carefully reviewed each wine based on its acidity, sweetness, body and structure to ensure a perfect match as cheeses also vary in moisture content, fat content, texture and flavour.
