Easy cheese and wine pairing

Finding a perfect match is not as scary as you think.

Almost every cheese changes a taster’s perception of a wine positively. Here’s our favourite pairings for you to explore with confidence – all you have to do is find the cheese and wine aisles.

  1. The cheese to try with Chardonnay

    Perennial cheeseboard faves, Brie and Camembert, work well with a lightly wooded Chardonnay loaded with tropical fruit and sweet tasting notes.
  2. The cheese to try with Sauvignon Blanc

    The organic Renosterbos goat’s milk cheese is an outstanding cheese that’s mild enough to pair well with a cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc.
  3. The cheese to try with Pinot Noir

    Brie de Roche is a white-mould cheese made from a blend of Jersey cow's milk and goat’s milk, resulting in a bold flavour. Pair it with a fruity Pinot Noir.
  4. The cheese to try with Cabernet Sauvignon

    The classic pairing for mature Gouda is Cabernet Sauvignon, for which South Africa happens to be known. Our Signature Cabernet Sauvignon will definitely fit the bill.
  5. The cheese to try with an MCC

    Fairview St Louis is a triple-cream, Jersey cow milk cheese with a white, bloomy rind and soft texture with just the slightest trace of button mushrooms. Pair it with Graham Beck Brut Blanc de Blanc for a hard contrast that will cut through the fat.
  6. The cheese to try with a late harvest Chenin Blanc

    Fairview Cambozola is a mix of a Camembert and a Gorgonzola, making it ideal for blue cheese beginners. Go for the Ken Forrester Noble Late Harvest for a touch of sweetness.
