THE FINER DETAILS
Pyengana Clothbound Cheddar
The Pyengana we stock has a particular flavor profile. Complex, big on flavor, well balanced acid characters with grassy, sweet, nutty over tones and great length of palate. Aroma’s of honey and herbs – nuances from the pastures of the lush valley of the George River. Mature cheeses exhibit a salt like crunch, similar to that found in good Parmigiano Reggiano. A mottled inedible cloth covered rind, which should be left on to protect the cheese & impart further subtle flavours, peeled back to serve - reveals a firm, slightly crumbly yellow pate.
ORIGIN: Pyengana, Tasmania
SUB CATEGORY: Wash Rind
RECOMMENDED WINE PAIRING:
Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Aged cheddar is strong, sharp and tangy, which is why we're pairing with our YV Cabernet. The depth of the earthy flavours, as well as the bright fruit and spice are powerful enough to deal with this classic, savoury combination.
