Description:

Located in West Gippsland, Victoria, Tarago Cheese Company utilises modern cheese-making technologies into its production process while still honouring the farmhouse way of life and its traditional cheese making practices. The free-range farm and its crop/flora management delivers clean fresh milk and in turn, cheeses with unique complexity and depth. 

Tarago Blue Orchid has been named so after the native “Sun Veined Blue Orchid” that grows in the local alpine region.

The Roqueforti mould cultures develop an intense blue vein, with strong bitterness evident early in maturation. As the proteins breakdown to bitter peptides, the flavour moderates, resulting in a smooth texture, sweet pungency and a delectable flavour once matured. The cheese has a loose curd structure which enables excess whey to be expelled, leaving the sweet and spicy well balanced on the palate.
