Only sharp or sweet white wines and less refined reds survive the power of most cheeses. Generally, the harder the cheese the more tannins the wine needs and the creamier the cheese the more acidity the wine needs. Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling compliment creamy cheeses well. A Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot go well with hard cheeses like a Cheddar, and a Pinot Noir matches well with a Gruyere. Perhaps the finest match is a sweet white wine with a salty, aged Stilton or, even better, Roquefort.
