Supreme Champion at the 2014 World Cheese Awards, this Stilton-style cheese shows what value can be added by manual cheesemaking. Made on a small scale, with hand-ladled curds, every cheese is pierced by hand so the 7 cheesemakers can feel the moisture and adapt the piercing accordingly for every individual cheese. Whilst it hits all the classic Stilton notes, some sharp saltiness, balanced by a richness, what stands out is the long, lingering toasted hazelnut melted butter on toast finish
Matched with Carmènère this results in a comforting pairing to finish. Carmènère is a 2019 vintage from Valle de Colchagua, 100% Carmènère.
