We were glad to have the opportunity to try another Vtopian cheese — sharp cheddar.

Like the other Vtopian cheeses we’ve tried, this one tasted more sweet than sharp (as with the caramelized onion camembert, this one contains soy-based yogurt). As Dana pointed out, “That’s what you get cheese for, the kick.”

Yet despite not being as sharp as we’d expected, this cheese still had a wonderfully cheesy texture.

We paired this wine, by the way, with Trinity Oaks Pinot Noir, one of our favorite vegan reds.
