Burts Blue min 200g and Tawny Port 20cl

£35.00

Burts Blue
The cheese develops a mouldy coat which can vary seasonally from darker ‘green blues’ to paler ‘grey blues’.
Each cheese is pierced by hand during the ripening process to allow the growth of mild blue veins through the paste.

Tawny Port
A chilled Tawny Port is fantastic accompaniment to any cheese board.

It’s something about the flavours of raspberry, dried blueberry, cinnamon and caramel that is wrapped up in Tawny Port that works particularly well blue cheese.
The combination of sweetness and acidity achieved through the ageing of the Port gives a balance of flavour when accompanied with cheese.

Burts Blue
Our Burt’s Blue cheese develops a ‘mouldy coat’, which can vary seasonally from darker ‘green blues’ to paler ‘grey blues’ (and its edible – incase you were wondering!)

Each cheese is pierced by hand during the ripening process to allow the growth of mild blue veins through the paste.

The younger cheese is more resistance to the touch but this resistance gives ways to a much softer texture as the matures.

Tawny Port
A chilled Tawny Port is fantastic accompaniment to any cheese board, but pairs particularly well with blue cheese.

Perhaps it’s something about the flavours of raspberry, dried blueberry, cinnamon and caramel all wrapped up in Tawny Port that works so well blue cheese. This 10 year old Tawny manages to combine not only all these flavours but also a sweetness and acidity achieved through the ageing.
