Serving suggestion: Feature Torndirrup Appenzell on a cheese platter along with other sharp cheeses, water crackers, dried pears, slices of Granny Smith apples and walnuts. Or serve as part of a “Ploughman’s Lunch”, that is, with chunks from a crusty loaf along with unsalted butter, pickled onions, mustard pickles or chutney.
Wine Pairing: Torndirrup Appenzell is a good companion to Riesling or even a hard cider would work. If you prefer red, choose a fruity variety such as a Pinot Noir or a Rhone
