Sour Cherry and Spiced Wine Spread ~ A New but Classic Cheese Pairing Favorite
Our ideas for our new product releases always start way before they are released, we think about what flavors we would just love to add, what has inspired us, what flavors we may have had years prior and want to bring back to the table and we think about our customers...what are they asking for and what can we offer them that really rounds out our product line.
This year we have released our newest cheese pairing spread ~ Sour Cherry Spiced Wine. We pulled our inspiration for this one last winter mainly influenced by what are customers were leaning towards...they wanted cheese pairings for the holidays and we wanted to extend our offerings...and who doesn't love sour cherries? I say cherries and cheese is like strawberries and cream...it's a throwback classic. It's made with local cherries from upstate New York and it's simmered out in a red wine reduction sauce with a medley of warm winter spices and finished with a touch of cracked black pepper (just enough to make your palate say aha!). I love this new edition and it is truly a classic pairing for cheese. The cherries are nice and tart yet the reduction sauce pulls a bit of sweetness and spice into the mix. We paired it with a bonne bouche and it was just perfection. It works so well with this style of aged goats cheese and when you pair it with pate it is just...well...they are no words. Try it.
Our Sour Cherry Spiced Wine Spread is still new to the Wozz! family but so far she has not disappointed. These cherry and creamy goats cheese crostini have been a knock your socks off appetizer and if you want to go sweet with our Spiced Wine Cherry Spread you can pair it with cocoa cakes or chocolate grahams and simply use cream cheese. Eating this cherry cheese dirt cake was like reliving your 7 year old birthday party.
So this is a short but sweet blog post introducing our newest cheese pairing addition ~ Sour Cherry Spiced Wine! It's sweet tart and spiced and a shining star in the cheese department!
