What You Need To Know About Gouda Cheese And Wine

Gouda is a yellow cow's milk cheese originally made in the Netherlands. Exported Gouda is usually fairly young (aged between 1 and 6 months), with a rich yellow color, covered with red or yellow paraffin wax. It has a pungent underlying bitterness, while being considerably creamier than other common cheeses. In Holland and in some specialty cheese shops you can obtain old Gouda (aged between 12 and 18 months), with an orange-yellow color, and sometimes covered with black paraffin wax. This cheese tastes strong cheese. Smoked gouda is a popular processed cheese.

In addition to the wines mentioned in our food pairing table you might consider a Riesling, a French Cotes du Rhone, or an Italian white.
