Tarago River Gippsland Blue: Review
Although visually there isn’t much blue in this cheese, Tarago River Gippsland Blue is a very good cheese. There are a range of colours within the paste ranging from a near orange at the softer outside, through to ivory colour in the slightly firmer centre section. As a result of the blueing there’s some typical ammonia on the nose of medium intensity. The natural sweetness of the dairy comes through combing with vegetal and chalky mineral flavours. there’s good length and complexity.

Wine Matching | Wine Pairing
A lot of people will naturally go for a big red wine to pair with a blue in a n attempt to match the power of the cheese flavour. Another approach is to have a sweeter wine so the sugar counters the saltiness of the blue. A Rutherglen Muscat is an example, as are port-style wines.
