What could be better than matching sparkling wine with cheese? 

HARD ITALIAN PARMESAN CHEESE

"You cant't go past Parmigiano Reggiano (the king of all hard cheeses)."

The salty flavours of the Parmigiano Reggiano bring out the full flavour of the bubbles. The texture of the hard cheese is quite enticing an develops into something rather special.

 

GOATS CHEESE

"Meredith Marinated Goats Cheeses OR Yarra Valley Dairy Goats Pyramid."

This combination is a winner as the acid in the wine and cheese balance each other, while the salt in the cheese enhances the fruit characters of the sparkling wine resulting in and all round party of the palate.
