Recently participated in an extremely extensive tasting of Wine and Cheese.... 8 varietals in all were sampled against over 45 cheeses... this took days. Name a cheese between Appenzeller and Zamarano and it was probably part of this tasting.
Top-rated cheeses which "made the cut" were re-tasted in a second round.
Survivors and thrivers after two rounds vs. sauvignon blanc are:
VERY TOP TIER: Chevre Goat Cheese,
2nd TIER: Gruyere, Provolone, and Tomme Basco
3rd Tier (still solid): Aged Cheddar (4 Yr. Old)
