Clau d´ville Cheddar – traditional cheddar with local terroir
Clau d´ville Clothbound Cheddar teases the taste buds at every stage of its development. Bright, citric flavors at the six-month mark complement a smooth, creamy texture. As each cheese approaches its first birthday the pineapple notes give way to a deeper, more savory cheese with a buttery, malty finish, offering a delightful taste sensation. Inspired by the classic English clothbound cheddar cheeses that were bandaged in cheesecloth and cave-aged, Clau d´ville Clothbound Cheddar is aged from six months to a year. At six months it is smooth and almost creamy. Aged a year or longer, it becomes deliciously crunchy, crumbly and tangy. Pair it with a fruity Pinot Noir, a strong ale, apple liqueur or cider, or a vintage port.
Until the creamery is finished and inspected we are only offering samples of cheese for donations to the building of the creamery. We thank you for your patience. Compliance with USDA regulations is onerous but required.
