FOOD MATCH; MILD CHEESE

All these wines should work with gentle hard cheeses (Caerphilly, Cheshire etc), which suit softer red wines or rounded whites.
Creamy, soft, mild cheeses need rich white wines - you can try a red but it won't be flattered. So stick to the first few here.
For goats' cheese ignore all this and drink Sancerre or Pouilly Fumé!
