Description

This blue-veined, semi-soft cheese is made from thermized milk and Le Pérado port wine from Les Boissons du Roy winery. Porto bleu has a creamy, smooth texture, tastes of port wine and hazelnuts, and is just slightly salty. The hint of wine from the port helps balance and lighten the blue-cheese flavour, making it a great introduction to blue cheeses for the uninitiated. It is excellent in salads, with meats or added to sauces.
