Murray's 1 Year Cheddar Bar 8oz
This item is no longer available.
There's something comforting about the old-school farmhouse style cheddar, especially when it comes from Vermont. Young for a cheddar, this Vermont classic is made with raw Jersey cow milk, giving it a creamy and rich consistency. Not a sharp intensity, instead this cheese has sweet apple and brown butter flavors that go down easy. A little bit crumbly and a tad toasty, it makes a great snack with ripe pairs, or is perfect to melt on top of chili. Open a crisp Riesling or bright Pilsner alongside it.

Just the Facts
Lagers and KolschLager, Dunkel, Schwarz, Pilsner, Kolsch Ale
Lagers run the gamut from crisp, pale Pilsners to dark-malted Dunkels and Märzens. Flavors are typically approachable and mellow, a delicate balance of toasted bread, gentle sweetness, and mild hop bitterness for structure.
Pair with: Almost any firm, mild cheese like Tomme de Savoie or Landaff Creamery Landaff.
RieslingThis food-friendly wine ranges from super sweet to quite dry. Acidity, minerality, and aromas of tropical fruit are almost always present.
Dry: Characterized by bracing acidity and stark minerality. Tropical fruit on the nose, stunningly balanced flavor overall.
Pair with: This versatile wine works equally well with a fresh chevre (bringing out acidity) as it does a stinker like Willoughby (playing up the sweet/salty contrast).
Sweet: The other end of the spectrum offers a cloyingly sweet, syrupy wine. Aromas of ripe peaches and tropical fruit dominate, along with floral, perfumed accents.
Pair with: With something this strong it’s best to contrast the sweetness with something funky or salty: A pungent washed rind like Grayson or a punchy blue like Bleu du Bocage.
