Extra Aged Cheddar - Raw Cow's Milk - Quebec, Canada - Vegetarian Rennet
If you like sharp cheddar, this cheese is sure to please. Made from high quality milk and carefully aged in climate controlled facilities for an astonishing 8 years, the cheese develops a crumbly texture and powerful bite. Unlike many inferior aged cheddars, this cheese does not have any "bitter" notes. Crunchy crystallized bits abound, giving the cheese a very enjoyable mouthfeel.
Enjoy this one on its own, or with sweet honey or figs, which balance out the sharp flavor.
Wine Pairing: Pairs best with rich white wines, particularly semi-sweet Riesling. For a red, try something with a bit of oak- a Bordeaux or aged Rioja. Dessert wines also pair nicely with a very sharp, but sweet, cheddar.
