Riesling wines originate from Germany's Rhein and Mosel river valleys and can be highly fruity; aromas of apple, peach and pear with some floral undertones. A Riesling can be dry to sweet as well as light to full-bodied. Our Riesling Cheese Board pairs well with a Riesling Spatlese (meaning 'late harvest', a wine from fully ripe grapes):
Nutty cow's milk cheese: Gruyere cave-aged - a large wheel produces a salty, nutty and meaty flavor with small crystals in the interior of the cheese (8 oz.).
Blue cheese: Original Blue Cheese - lovely sweet, creamy and blue cheese. Not overwhelming, and truly blue (8 oz.).
Aged cheese: Old Amsterdam - rich and sweet in flavor with caramel and toasty notes and a long, balanced finish (8 oz.).
Soft-ripened cheese: Triple Cream Brie from California; it is smooth, rich, and slightly sweet with a thin to medium rind (8 oz.).
