Murray's Fondue Blend 6oz
There are a few things you want from a fondue. You want it to be hearty. You want it to be nutty. You want it to have deeply caramelized notes. The dish was, after all, conceived to utilize staple foods during cold Swiss winters. Our very own fondue blend hits all those marks. It's a mixture of GruyÃ¨re, Raclette, and Fontina three fondue faves that are superbly balanced to bring all the classic flavors. And doing the â€˜due has never been more convenient: simply add some wine and garlic to a pan and sprinkle the cheese in. All that's left to do is grab your favorite accompaniments and start dipping away.
Just the Facts
ChardonnayThis wine is all over the map – literally! Flavor varies widely depending on where and how it’s made.
Old World Chardonnay: crisp and minerally, with flavors of apples and roasted pears.
Pair with: Fresh or bloomy rind cheese, like Delice de Bourgogne
New World Chardonnay (USA, warmer climates): richly buttery and oaky, heavy notes of vanilla, brown butter, and tropical fruits.
Pair with: Slightly stronger cheese like sweet Tickler cheddar, or a mild washed rind.
Oxidized Chardonnay: When Chardonnay is intentionally exposed to air it is “oxidized.” Common in the Jura mountain region, this wine is almost sherry-like with spicy, nutty flavors.
Pinot GrigioA lighter, crisper white wine. Tends to be refreshing and fruity, with aromas of stone fruit, peach, quince, and lemon.
Sauvignon BlancTypically bright and lemony, with clean citrus flavors. Can also have grassy and vegetal aromas (think green bell pepper).
