A mountain cheese produced in the Autumn of 2019 in the Berne Valley in Switzerland. The cheeses are made in large wheels of 30-34kg, like the traditional Comte, with milk obtained from the Simmentaler breed of cattle, typical in this area.
The resulting flavour is strong and rich, very nutty, with a sweet and slightly fruity after taste, notes of pineapple. A classic Swiss alpine cheese.
The texture of the cheese is firm with big crystals from the protein breakdown. These crystals are formed from calcium in the milk and are a sign of mature cheese. Delicious paired with fresh cherries.
