    Which cheese brand for wine?

    Hi, any recommendation for a suitable cheese to go with wine? A product that is available in local supermarket please.

    Generally speaking, all cheeses goes well with wine.

    As for a particular type, which I forget, try Jason Supermart at Bangsar Shopping Centre, Bangsar.

    You can go to the Jason Food Hall at bangsar shopping centre, many types of cheese for wine are available there. Can't remember the brand as I seldom buy cheese for wine. .

    If you want chocolate to go with wine/beer/champagne (which I usually do), just try Godiva from Klcc... or alternatively if Godiva is out of stock at home, ferrero rocher will do...

    Cheers...
    Chinese tea is good, lager beer is better, 香檳 is the best..

    Great men think alike I supposed.

    In KL, majority of the supermarket sells cheeses. eg, Eh Cold Storage and BIG Ben's.

    I was at a vineyard for wine tasting not long ago, the cheese was so so tasty.

    We have friends visiting occasionally; I thought it would be a really memorable visit if I could offer them some tasty cheese to go with wine. I have tried various brand of cheese in the past, but haven’t found one that is really nice.

    ......
    OIC, I had been to several vineyards both in Aussie, NZ, Europe, Canda. In these vineyards where they sell their own brands of wines and they always have the right selected types of cheeses to go along with their wines.

    So say if you go to Jason at Bangsar, ask them but it will never be the same as in a vineyard.

    I think you cannot get the kind of taste from local stores.

    Maybe is the ambient temperature, maybe it's just psychological biasness, the taste of cheese in overseas is always better than here..

    Even the same blardy breakfast cheese in O'Brien northern Ireland taste better than the same cheese in O'Brien here. .

    my fave is Cabernet Sauvignon with not too aged Gouda. I love Riesling with matured cheddar .
    As a student, I love the cheap Beaujolais to pair with the expensive blue cheese...
    All the above are easily available in bolehland.

    Agreed, just looking for something available here.

    I decided to google and found the following:

    so, is not just about the cheese but also the type of wine.

    I think our taste buds after consuming so many eastern "strong flavor" stuff are no longer sensitive to slight difference in taste…

    I’m a lazy fella, I just make life simple with chocolate… feel sleepy to look at all sorts of cheese, let alone take effort to buy and pair them with different wine...

    Champagne (preferably vintage Moet Chandon) with Godiva chocolate .. the bestest.
    Chinese tea is good, lager beer is better, 香檳 is the best..

    Funny enough that my numbed taste buds are not into Moet or any bubbly for that matter. My loss i think...but i do like wine, developed & inspired during my early cooliedays in a bistro vino in W.Hampstead.
    Anyway, I like this particular vineyard when spending tiime down way south...http://shop.wolfblass.com.au/CurrentSpecials
    When broke i go for the yellow label and when truly really really po kai, the brown label, value for money. Kinda like those young (read as cheap) Beaujolaise ( downed by the bottles) paired with just a crusty loaf of baguette, during the long gone, weekends o'summer time. Nice.
