Champagne Cheddar

Cheers to Champagne-Infused Cheddar

Champagne and sharp cheddar are two of my absolute favorite things to eat, so you'd think that I would be thrilled by the mere existence of Somerdale's Champagne cheddar. Quite to the contrary, I was skeptical at best, but thankfully let my curiosity get the best of me and sampled a sliver. Firm but creamy, sharp but nutty, with an ineffable fruity note, this cheese is my new dairy crush.

My one quibble — a minor one at that — is that if I didn't know this cheese was infused with Champagne I likely wouldn't pick up on its addition. Rather, its subtle tart and fruity flavor meshes so well with the cheese that it's a seamless inclusion (so in the end, it's essentially a positive).

If I have my way, I'll be including it in cheese plates throughout the holiday season (and for months to come), and if you'd like to do the same, it can be found at Whole Foods, starting tomorrow, Dec. 26.
