Appearance: Pale yellow-white
Texture: Moderately firm, with a slight calcium lactate “crunch” and a tendency to crumble due to extended aging
Taste: Nutty, sweet, and sharp
- While delicious when grated into a casserole or bowl of chili, we most enjoy this nuanced, aged cheese on a cheese plate alongside dried fruit, nuts, and cured meat.
- This cheddar pairs well with a supple, medium-bodied red wine such as Syrah or a Bordeaux blend. We also love it with a malty amber ale.
