Over the Moon "Galatic Gold" cheese
1/2 square 100g
NZ Champion washed rind, champions of cheese awards 2014 & 2015.
Made from high quality cow’s milk, a washed rind soft cheese is a winner on any cheese board.
Galactic Gold is orangey-yellow, the rind can be a little sticky. With a rich, aromatic, piquant flavour, a creamy, soft and supple body. The texture is a little like that of camembert, creamy and melting. As this cheese matures it develops a more complex taste.
This style of cheese is known as ‘washed rind’. After making, the cheeses are set out to mature and are washed with brine solution every 2-3 days during their maturation time. This process helps to develop the distinctive texture and flavour.
Galactic Gold is delicious in salads, quiches, and on cheese platters, but best of all as a dessert with dried fruit.
