Balderson Mild Cheddar

Balderson Mild is a gentle, buttery cheese that would go well with a dry sparkling wine or a Sauvignon Blanc, unoaked Chardonnay or a dry rose. Avoid full-bodied reds with tannin or oak-aged Chardonnays whose flavour will overpower the cheese.

Ontario: Chateau des Charmes Sauvignon Blanc
British Columbia: Calona Private Reserve Semillon

Balderson Extra-Old Cheddar

Balderson Extra Old is a cheddar that is aged for up to eighteen months and takes on a lively bite that requires a well-structured red wine to balance its intensity of flavour.

A Canadian Merlot with its ripe blueberry-blackberry flavour will fill the bill.
Ontario: Cave Spring Merlot
British Columbia: Tin Horn Creek Merlot

Balderson Heritage (3 Year/5 Year)

Balderson 3 and 5 year Heritage Cheddar is a rich spectrum of nutty, salty, fruity flavours that linger on the palate and cry out for as full-bodied and as rich a red wine as you can find.

Ontario: Lakeview Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
British Columbia: Mission Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Reserve.
