Maturing & tasting notes

Aged only 3-6 months this is a Gouda style cheese, made using pasteurised milk and vegetarian rennet. In a classic tomme shape and weighing in at approximately 4kg per wheel.
Soft and buttery on the palate, this cheese has incredible sweetness redolent of salted caramel and fresh vanilla beans. With a slight hint of citrus to contrast the savoury qualities of sheep’s milk making this cheese a very well balanced cheese.
