The ideal wine for a cheese board: Semi-hard Cheeses

Remember that the cheese board is like a Hitchcock movie. The tension grows until the great finale. It is time for semi-hard cheeses with moderate flavors. They contain less water and correspond to a slower fermentation and aging process than soft cheeses, between 1 and 12 months.

This style of cheese is more concise, with a richer flavor (caramel, hazelnuts, notes of butter and bouquet of wildflowers). These types of cheeses include: British Cheddar, Dutch Maasdam, Edam, Gouda and Swiss Emmental. With this category, red and fruity wine styles, such as Casillero del Diablo Merlot work very well.

Gouda or Cheddar are examples of cheeses with a high fat content and can be served with even more powerful wines, such as Casillero del Diablo Shiraz or Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon. Milk and fat proteins cover the mouth, masking the tannins.
