Tasmanian Heritage Classic Blue offers an indulgent rich and creamy texture, complemented by a sweet balanced blue flavour. The traditional style blue cheese has distinctive marbling which is the result of being matured in wax before being cut into wedges. Tasmanian Heritage Classic Blue is loved by cheese connoisseurs and novices alike.
Tasmanian Heritage Classic Blue should be savoured with pears, grapes, walnuts or fresh figs and sourdough bread or oaten biscuits.
Due to its great melting properties, it is also outstanding in pasta sauces and omelettes or crumbled over baked potatoes.
This cheese is best paired with a sweet, late picked white wine.
Semillon is a full bodied white wine with a crispness that matches well to the creaminess of strong, robust cheeses. They require a complex wine with punch and a fuller bouquet.
The zing and acidity of a Riesling will cut right through the decadent creaminess of a cheese.
Sweet or sticky wines with a balancing acidity at the finish are the safest match for the tangy saltiness of blue vein cheeses. The sweetness of the wine balances the mammoth flavours of a strong blue.
