This Fromage Friday, we are featuring Chällerhocker and Luna Vineyards Chardonnay – A Magical Pairing
Chällerhocker, pronounced “holler hocker”, meaning “sitting in the cellar” is a Swiss cheese washed in brine and spices and then aged for a minimum of 12 months. Made from thermalized milk, the cheese is dense and smooth with very few holes or cracks. The flavor is a lovely concoction of roasted peanuts, melted leeks, brown butter, sweet cream and caramel. Firm yet creamy, this is a wonderful melter and is great for an extra exciting grilled cheese or as a way to liven up your fondue. This delicious cheese is a fabulous addition to a holiday cheese board.

“From the Oldfield-Boushey Vineyard, this has a deep color and a wild, exotic nose with such peppery complexity. Really intense palate with depth and focus. The dark plums and blackberries are striking and the pepper continues here and there’s an expansive feel to the finish. It builds and holds in impressive, bold and confident form.” –JS
