Sparkling wines have always been associated with joyous occasions for their festive taste. These wines also pair well with certain types of cheeses, particularly those a bit on the salty side. Here are some excellent suggestions from Margaret River wineries like The Berry Farm.
Rich cheeses high in butterfat enhance the acidity of champagne, giving you a fuller taste as you enjoy each bite of cheese. Saint-Andre, a triple crème cheese made from cow’s milk in France, has a smooth and buttery taste that matches a wide range of sparkling wines. Another type of triple crème cheese favourite is Brilliat-Savarin, which was prominent in Normandy in the 18th century. Fruit-flavoured sparkling wines go best with high-fat cheeses like these.
