Winemaker Tom Carson is bit of a legend in Australia's uber-trendy Mornington Peninsula, and most of his award winning wines don't come cheap. Distant Noises is Tom's foray into affordable and accessible wines. We think Chardonnay is probably the greatest all-rounder when it comes to cheese pairing, and this made us giddy with happiness when we did our rigorous taste testing (oh the things we do for you!). This is like a modern take on white Burgundy and delivers lots of the same flavours - nectarine, citrus and spicy French oak with a core of zesty lip-smacking acidity which gives such a burst of energy to cheese. We'd like to keep as little distance between us and this Chardonnay as possible.

Our house wine selection has been curated by Alistair Cooper, Master of Wine. We're big believers that the importance of great wine when it comes to great cheese cannot be understated, and as such have selected these wines after hours and hours of scrutiny (and fun), to be all rounders for pairing with our cheese.

Delivery is not only free, and not only at a set day of your choosing, but also comes in a padded climate control box (the only in the industry) that comes with a 48 hour freshness guarantee.

The week before Christmas is our (and our courier’s) busiest time of the year. Please use the delivery date you have selected as a guide rather than a guarantee. We will ensure that:

- Your delivery will arrive within 2 days of your preferred date (either before or after)

- Your cheese will still arrive in the best condition. It will have been prepared freshly and will not have been with our courier beyond our maximum of 48hrs

- Your cheese will be perfect for Christmas (whether for yourself or a gift)

- You will receive delivery notifications for when your order is dispatched that mean you can track when it’s in transit

If you aren’t in for your delivery, this won’t matter. Our couriers will leave your cheese in you designated safe place in our climate controlled packaging.

We’re a small business working with an (incredible) perishable product. For advice on delivery or any cheesy questions, get in touch via the live chat or on hello@thecheesegeek.com
