Description:

This rare North American benchmark blue cheese is handmade at Rogue Creamery in Oregon for only a few weeks each year during the autumn equinox. At this time of year the creamery’s single herd of Brown Swiss and Holstein cows are at the end of the natural lactation cycle and their rich concentrated milk is infused with the esters of native grasses, hops, clover, blackberries and wild herbs that grow in the lush grazing pastures that grow beside the Rogue River.

After the young cheeses have been salted and pierced they are hand wrapped in local shiraz vine leaves macerated in pear brandy from nearby Clear Creek, then ripened in the dairy cellars for at least three months.

This batch has been specially made for us by cheese makers David Gremmels and Cary Bryant. Its moist creamy texture has a creamy blue mould flavour with subtle hints of brandy, fruit and autumn pasture.
