Fonseca Vintage Port Pairing

The traditional accompaniments to vintage port are Stilton, and/or walnuts. There is some sound sense here.

Stilton has a powerful, salty flavour that few wines can stand up to. But Fonseca has the weight and the sweetness to cope.

And walnuts? The slight bitterness of those tannic skins brings a pleasingly acerbic edge to the marriage. Other cheeses to consider would be Cashel Blue, Roquefort or even a wonderful artisan Canadian cheese called Le Ciel de Charlevoix - a creamy, lightly blue veined cheese made with whole milk.
