Sparkling sweet wine paired with a blue-veined local goat cheese
NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Pelissero Moscato d’Asti DOCG 2020 The Pelissero Moscato D’Asti DOCG is made with 100% Moscato grapes that are meticulously picked, then destemmed, crushed and pressed at low temperatures in their cellars. The entire procedure is done very quickly, in order to preserve all of its incredible qualities.
An aromatic wine of utmost renown, it showcases a yellow-green color, with gold hues and peppered with beautiful little bubbles. It’s fresh and youthful, with aromas of white acacia flowers, honey, and passionfruit, and notes of salvia, thyme and mint.
It has a balanced acidity on the palate, with flavors of honey and pear coming through. It has a pleasant taste, but with a nice intensity.
Malagos Davao Blue Goat Cheese
A strong-smelling cheese, giving off notes of earthy mushrooms, the Davao Blue Goat cheese is pasteurized and soured with a cheese starter.
Aged and dried for 30-45 days, blue mold starts to develop in the cheese. This blue mold is what gives it its aroma, and also what gives it its soft, smooth, and creamy texture.
Sparkling wine - Fine sparkling wine must be handled with care. For short-term storage (a few days to a month), you can keep your bottle upright—but away from bright or artificial light. For long-term storage, especially for vintage cuvées, you must store the bottles on their side in a wine rack or cellar to keep the cork from drying out. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 10°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 1 to 3 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
Cheese - Cheeses (except brined ones in jars) should be stored in the crisper or the butter drawer of a refrigerator, not on the shelves themselves. This is to help regulate their temperature and humidity levels—and prevents the formation of mold. Once opened, they should not be kept in their original packaging. Soft cheeses with delicate rinds need to breathe, so they are best placed in glass containers lined with paper towels to absorb extra moisture. Leave the lid open a tiny bit for air to circulate and don’t forget to write up a label with the date you first opened the package. Kindly pay attention to the best before date label when you receive your cheese. Consume prior to date indicated.
