This cheese will be returning till late 2020/early 2021. Product of long-term ageing in a fancy cheese "cave".
Authentically developed by an ex-dairy cheesemaker for true dairy-like flavours that are paired with great textures. Uses dairy-methods for greater flavours without any tricks.
UK's first authentically developed cultured long-aged cultured cheeses. Matured in our faux cheese-cave alongside the blue cheeses.
|Tasting Profile||Inner-most paste has notes of lactic, fresh flavours. Hints of savoury. Nutty. Tangy nature. Outer-paste is more savoury with subtle hints of earthiness. The rind is extra savoury, salty, earthy.|
|Texture||Innermost-centeral paste is firm, but creamier and softer than the outer paste. Has a crumbly nature to it. The inner-outer part of the paste is more firmer whereas you get closer to the rind, becomes more harder.|
|Maturity||Dependant on variety - last version was 6 months matured.
Online purchase: Average 2-weeks minimum
Wholesale Partners: 3-4 weeks
|Can be frozen||Yes|
Notice: This wheel is part of the experimental long-aged range. Lessons learnt from the 4-month version have not yet come into play yet to provide an extra mature cheese without the dry spots. The cause is due to too much moisture & fat loss. An easy fix. There have been cheese-cave problems though with the climate system. That meant even more moisture was lost. This is still a very good cheese, I promise but improvements will be made in the future for greater perfection :)
Pairings & Uses
Recommend enjoying this masterpiece on a cheeseboard only. Remove from fridge 15-30mins (still wrapped) before enjoying.
Wine Pairing: Coming soon
UK's first and only long-aged vegan cheese (at time of writing) with a developed natural rind. Expertly crafted and matured in a cheese cave with 90% humidity to ensure flavours are created slowly and the texture hardens without drying.
Results are the product of skilled dairy-cheese ageing methodologies.
