Grafton Truffle Cheddar Bar 8oz
Adding the trendy ingredient of truffle mushrooms to their classic Vermont Cheddar, Grafton Village has added a great new cheese to their family of products. The earthy qualities of the truffle pair well with the sharp cheddar, bringing the woodsy outdoor flavors of grass and nuts to the forefront. With a little bit of pungency and a touch of musk, this cheese creates a new experience different from typical cheddars. Most will munch on it with crackers, but we say add it to your favorite recipes and elevate your classic dishes to a new level.
Just the Facts
BourbonThink: Caramelly, crystalline cheeses have the strength to stand up to bolder booze. With sweet bourbon, these cheeses become almost like dessert.
Cabernet SauvignonFull-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 Challerhocker 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.
MalbecThis 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.
Pinot NoirLighter bodied and delicate. Old World style generally offers more funk, New World more fruit.
Old World Pinot: Flavors of fresh cherries and raspberry balanced by a barnyard funk and high minerality. Sometimes has floral aromas, reminiscent of rose petal.
