Vulto Creamery
Miranda

$18.99/EA
A tribute like no other, this Absinthe-washed masterpiece is named for cheese-maker Jos Vulto’s late wife who wished to have a cheese named after her. Made with raw cow’s milk at his creamery in the Catskills and washed in a locally produced Absinthe called Meadow of Love, the light orange rind imparts bright herbaceousness to the lightly bubbled, savory interior. The cheese’s meaty paste complements a pairing of smoky speck and tangy pickles.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Cabernet Sauvignon

    Full-bodied with no shortage of flavor. This grape is grown in almost every climate, which means lots of diversity across bottles.

    Old World Cabernet: Earthy with aromas of leather, hay, and dark dried fruits. Sometimes a hint of eucalyptus or violet.
    Pair with: Cheese with flavor that can stand up to this big wine. Alpine style cheeses like Comte or Appenzeller and some sweeter blues like Bleu d’Auvergne would make a good match.

    New World Cabernet: Characterized by bold oaky flavors and high levels of tannins. These wines are about as full-bodied as you can get, very jammy with flavors of reduced fruit.
    Pair with: Sweet clothbound cheddar or a Grana style cheese like Parmigiano Reggiano or Podda Classico.

     

  • Malbec

    This rustic wine is inky and dark, full-bodied with plenty of tannins. Fruity flavors of plums and berries are contrasted by spice and leather.
    Pair with: Equally toothsome cheeses like Boerenkaas Gouda.

  • Bourbon

    Think: Caramelly, crystalline cheeses have the strength to stand up to bolder booze. With sweet bourbon, these cheeses become almost like dessert.
