In our ninth episode of In the Cellar, we head to the International Cheese Shop at the Hy-Vee Premium Grocery in Liberty, MO and take a look behind the scenes in their show kitchen at a number of lovely wine & cheese pairings! The first wine we review is the Capa Rota Monastrell / Syrah blend from the Yecla, region of Southern Spain. Monastrell, also called Mourvedre and Mataro in other parts of the world is a dark red grape known for being cherry flavored with a dry, light mocha dustiness to the wine. For the perfect cheese comparison we stuck with the theme of what “grows together goes together” and choose a Cheese used quite a bit in Spanish cuisine, Manchego to pair with this light red wine. A waxy, semi dry style of cheese, the Manchego is used in many charcuterie plates and finds its way next to another Spanish component, Serrano Ham and olives on many platters. If you are looking for a great pairing to entertain this winter, the Spanish sampler plate with Capa Rota Monastrell / Syrah is a great hit! For the second wine we showcase a specialty wine, the best of the best from Caligiore Organic Vineyards in
