LE14 – Feta and Cream Cheese Whip

Featuring LE14 Washington Triumph

Whipped and creamy – this easy cold appetizer pairs exceptionally well with medium bodied and fruity red or red blends.

1 Brick Philadelphia Original (not reduced fat) Cream cheese – warmed to room temperature and cut into cubes.
200 grams finely crumbled Feta (Used Ziggy’s 22% MF) – rinsed, patted dry, and crumbled

Whip the softened cream cheese and crumbled feta together. Serve on your favorite crusty bread or (non salted) cracker. If paired with a salted cracker, the salt from the feta will overwhelm the pairing.

How this food and wine pairing works together: The expectation from this  LE14 wine is to present as tannic (while young) with some pepper and fruit on the palate. This pairing cuts the tannins and reduces the pepper – smoothing this fantastic Bordeaux Blend.
