Wine and Cheese @ Villa Danieli


Wine and cheese make good buddies. Wine and cheese also make good company whether one is alone or with friends. And when we put wine, cheese and friends together, its a brilliant pairing. A rainy evening saw us chilling in Villa Danieli in Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur enjoying an evening of wine and cheese pairing.

Priced at RM120++ per person from now till 30th November 2013 comes with 5 different wines paired with 5 different cheese. 
• Caprino Cheese with Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand 2012)
• Fontina Cheese with Mitchelton Blackwood Park Botrytis Riesling (Australia 2010)
• Pecorino Cheese with Frescobaldi Remole Chianti Sangiovese (Italy 2011)
• Asiago Cheese with Banfi Col di Sasso Toscana Cabernet Sangiovese (Italy 2010)
• Bel Paese Cheese with Banfi Bellagio Rosso Sangiovese (Italy 2012)
Soft and creamy Caprino Cheese is a goat cheese that will have you wanting more. Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand 2012) is one of my fave of the night. Vibrant and citrusy, it was a nice wine to begin the evening.
Earthy tasting Fontina Cheese is made from unpasteurized cow's milk went rather interestingly with the Mitchelton Blackwood Park Botrytis Riesling (Australia 2010). The riesling has a refreshing acidity to it with a nice orange and toffee flavours.
Pecorino Cheese is made from ewe milk. A tad crumbly for some folks but this is a delightful cheese if you love a rich buttery and nutty flavoured cheese. The Frescobaldi Remole Chianti Sangiovese (Italy 2011) is easy to drink with lots of sweet berries balanced with a touch of spice.
Asiago Cheese is slightly hard and taste a tad like Parmesan cheese. Paired with Banfi Col di Sasso Toscana Cabernet Sangiovese (Italy 2010) that seemed to be better when decantered. Ruby red with nuances of sweet plum and currants with soft tannins.
Bel Paese Cheese is the hubby's fave cheese for the night. Soft, creamy and not too overpowering, this cheese certainly went well with the sweet and fruity Banfi Bellagio Rosso Sangiovese (Italy 2012). I am actually surprised that I actually loved this sweet wine. Am certainly looking forward to stocking this up for hot Sunday pool chill out sessions:D

Wine and cheese isn't just for the evenings. Head on over to Villa Danieli if you wish to have it for lunch too!
