Menu Matcher - Cheese


The huge variety of flavours that can be found in cheese make it very difficult to generalise when looking for the perfect wine partnership but the one thing to be sure of is that red wine or port are not necessarily the best match. A dry white Sancerre can be lovely with a firm goat's cheese and a sweet but balanced Australian Muscat works terribly well with blue cheese. So be adventurous.


Botham Merrill Wills Shiraz 2011, Australia

Botham Merrill Wills Shiraz 2011, AustraliaSir Ian Botham, President of LLR, is marking this extra special 25th anniversary of his first walk, with two very special vintage releases of Botham-Merrill-Willis wines.

Cricket legends and fellow wine buffs Ian Botham and Bob Willis joined forces with one of Australia's top wine makers, Geoff Merrill, to launch their own range of fine wines. Botham Merrill Willis wines - BMW for short - was born out of the cricketers' mutual love of Australian wine, developed over many years during their tours Down Under with the England team.

Geoff Merrill took the leading role in selecting the grapes and blending the wines. Ian Botham and Bob Willis were consulted at each stage of the process, trying a variety of samples before agreeing on a final blend.

The palate displays fresh fruits and a silky texture with very fine tannins. Toasted smoky oak, well balanced acid and concentrated fruit flavours provide a great structure to this wine. Youthful and vibrant, the complexities that only bottle age can bring are just beginning to develop. Although drinking well now, the rewards of cellaring will add new dimensions to the enjoyment of this wine.


Churchills Crusted Port, Unfiltered, 2005 - Churchill Graham, Oporto

Churchills Crusted Port, Unfiltered, 2005 - Churchill Graham, Oporto Churchill's Crusted Port is even closer in style to Vintage Port than their “traditional” LBV. It presents a dense, concentrated wine for far less than the price of a Vintage Port.

Crusted Port is a style of wine that was invented by English wine merchants when port was still being shipped in bulk and blended to their specification. It ceased to exist as soon as bulk shipments were stopped. There followed almost a decade before the Portuguese authorities reinstated Crusted port as a special category.

Churshill's Crusted Port is made up of the very best wines from two or sometimes three different harvests. It is kept in wood for up to two years and then bottled for further maturation. As this blend is not subject to any fining or filtration it continues to develop and mature in bottle. Given sufficient time, it throws a thick sediment, otherwise called a “Crust” from which it derives its name.
