Capability Brown is like a blue cheese without the distinctive veins, making it smooth and salty. There are hints of the flavours of lactic and lemon, and tastes that are similar to Caerphilly and White Stilton.
A soft and delicate cheese needs an elegant match, so we often pair Capability Brown with Grillo from Colomba Bianca. Its subtle floral aroma and fruity notes make it a light and fresh match for the slight saltiness of the cheese.
About the producer
Doddington Dairy in Northumberland produces cheese from cows grazing on some of the UK’s most uninhabited and unspoilt land. The rich flavours of Capability Brown come thanks to the microflora unique to the landscape of the North Doddington Farm fields.
How to enjoy
In keeping with a popular neighbouring Yorkshire tradition, this cheese is ideal simply sliced on top of a rich fruit cake. Complement that with a sherry, or enjoy Capability Brown with a fresh and light white wine for easy drinking.
