Redwine Swiss Farmer Cheese about 1250 g
by Walo Von Mühlenen
The cheese follows the Tilsiter tradition with a special note! It is from the eastern part of Switzerland, in the Säntis mountains.
The affinage occurs in a cellar with moderate cold and humidity to let the cheese ripen slowly develop the perfect rich and creamy taste. The affinage also includes red wine, which makes the whole cellar exude its aroma. After six months of aging, the cheese is perfect with a beautiful nice dark rind, a light red wine taste, an affirmed character, and a creamy substance.
