We're going to be joined by Austin Peeler, our guy on the inside at Neal's Yard in London. He helps us hand-select the cheeses that we buy and that you lucky sods get to eat. He'll be talking about the new Pitchfork Cheddar from Trethowan Brothers.
We'll also be joined by Mark Davidson, an U.S.-dwelling Aussie wine expert to talk about... well, Australian wines.
Enjoy a hunk of Pitchfork Cheddar, an extra-mature cheese, clothbound with lard, and with a dense soft, flaky texture. Fun fact: It's created only 5 miles from Cheddar, England and a hunk of farm made Montgomery's Cheddar (one of the shops favorites).
It'll be perfectly paired with 2018 Penley Estate 'Tolmer' Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawarra, Australia and Chambers Rosewood Muscadelle, Victoria, Australia.
