Benguela Cove Sauvignon Blanc & Caciotta from Udderly Delicious, Darling

Benguela Cove Chardonnay & Matured Boerenkaas from Doornkraal Cheese Factory, Cullinan

A mild Gouda cheese kept on the shelf for 4 weeks at a constant 12˚C, produced in the traditional Dutch method, obtaining the good and natural bacteria necessary for a successful ageing process.

Benguela Cove Pinot Noir & Karoo Crumble from Langbaken, Karoo

A mature hard cheese which is a cross between a gruyere and a cheddar. It has a firm crumbly texture and good crystals. The finish on the palate is smooth with a fruity flavour.

Matilda’s Secret & Cremona Blue from Denmark

A full-bodied, rich and complex cheese presenting a crumbed yellowish colour with greenish blue veins evenly spread throughout. Showing some irregular distribution holes, it finishes with a tangy sharp taste.

A mould-ripened creamy chevre cheese encased in ash, with a layer of ash through it. It has a subtle mushroom flavour and is made using milk from hand-reared Swiss Saanen.
