Castello® Red Rind Cheese 150g

about

A milky and buttery taste with notes of tropical fruit and green peppers which is derived from the natural, red smear on the rind and the albino blue mould inside. As Red Rind cheese matures, the taste and flavour of the read smear become slightly sharper, while the cheese itself gets more character. Castello Red Rind is a truly special cheese. Its taste and flavour are intense and piquant. Thanks to the unique production method, the mould culture develops from the inside of the cheese, whereas the red smear does so from the outside. It's consistency is creamy. ONLY AVAILABLE IN AUSTRALIA.
