Wine tasting

Thank you for joining us at the first event of Circle Sq. It was our pleasure to welcome you to the tasting room at Hedonism Wines in Mayfair. 17 May 2018

A note about the cheese from:
Susan Cheng [our sommelier on the evening]

Hard cheese
Cornish Yarg – Cornwall

Soft cheese
Waterloo – Riseley, Berkshire
In case you wondered which one it is, it’s the camembert lookalike with a slightly orange tint to the cheese (it is made from Guernsey milk which contains high level of Carotene which we find in carrots.

Sharpham Goat Brie – Totnes, Devon
This is the one which was served on its own on a single black slate, delicious, nutty creamy and salty.

Finally the Blue cheese – now this is a new discovery for me too. I love it…

Cote Hill Blue – Lincolnshire
Information about the cheesemakers:

Michael and Mary Davenport have been making cheese since 2005 using milk from their Friesian and Red Poll herd. In the summer, the cattle graze on pastures rich in clover and in the winter they are fed with a specific mix of silage and haylage, all of which is grown on the farm. The pate has a rich, creamy quality – rather like Camembert – and due to the cellar-maturation, the rind develops natural blooms, imbuing the interior Roquefort-like-molds with a distinctly earthy, mushroomy quality. This is a new style of British blue. (I still love a good Colston Bassett though!)

All cheese served can be found at The Fromagerie. 2-6 Moxon St. London. W1U 4EW
