Maybe this match wasn’t made in heaven, but close enough, it was made in New York. It’s friday, so it’s time we bring you this weekends pairing. Over looking Cayuga Lake, Sheldrake Point Winery was founded in 1997, and produces some of the Finger Lakes finest wines. Sheldrake Point Winery with its 44 acre vineyard produces 11,000 cases, with each bottle just as amazing as the one residing next to it. Being named 2009 and 2010 New York State Winery of the year, there is no question why we believe their 2010 Riesling pairs amazing with our Baby Gouda Cheese.
Sheldrake Point’s 2010 Riesling has a hint of green apple and a smooth lemon aroma. It’s fresh stone fruit flavors accompany our baby gouda cheese very nicely. Our Baby Gouda is softer and smoother than our aged gouda cheese. Being delicate it still wields a sturdy gouda flavor. Sheldrake Points 2010 Riesling shares its unique Finger Lakes grape flavor extremely well. It’s shy, clear, pale lemon color, is very appealing just like its flavor. Thats why we love it. So if you can find yourself a bottle of Sheldrake Point Winery 2010 Riesling, try it with our gouda. We are sure you’ll be satisfied!
