Welcome back to another Wine Wednesday ladies and gents! I’m sad (but very excited) to share the last of my Cultivar Wine posts with you all today. I started off with a rich and smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, skipped ahead to dessert with a fruity and flowery Rose Wine and am now ending off with a creamy Sauvignon Blanc. Things have been so busy in my life lately, I really have to stop myself sometimes and say ok…. time to slow down, relax, and enjoy this evening with a nice cheese plate. And what better thing to go along with a fresh fruit and cheese plate than a chilled Sauvignon Blanc!
Whipping up a cheese plate after work is one of my favorite things. For this combo I incorporated three of the key elements to a great cheese plate – fruit, meat, bread. If possible I try to go with one non-cheese ingredient for each type of cheese. In this case I had a fun combo of Mahone, Iberico and Manchego. To go along with the cheese, I sliced up and toasted a fresh baguette as well as some salami, apples, and fresh strawberries. I’m normally more of an afternoon red wine drinker but I’ll say much like the Cultivar Rose, I am now a re-born Sauvignon Blanc fan. This blend was so incredibly smooth, it took all of my willpower not to drink the whole bottle. Yum!
