Party season hack #3: consult the specialists for your after-dinner cheeseboard

When it comes to entertaining this summer, our goal is to make things easy as pie. Brancott Estate is helping this pursuit with its Letter Series range, a stellar collection of single-vineyard wines that are perfect for entertaining. Sourced from Marlborough’s top-performing vineyards, each varietal is designed to showcase the distinct flavours of the region.

Party season hack: Kapiti makes the after dinner finisher too easy thanks to the panoply of cheeseboards available for delivery from its Auckland store via UberEATS. Simply place your order — you can choose between the number of cheeses you desire or the number of people to cater to — and await your selection of Aorangi Brie, Kahurangi Creamy Blue and so many more to round off your evening perfectly.

Wine match: In this instance, we’re calling upon Brancott Estate Letter Series ‘B’ Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc 2014. The dessert wine’s rich blend makes it a seriously good match for the smorgasbord of earthy, umami, blue cheese flavours, fruit pastes and honey found on an after-dinner cheeseboard.
