* BRONZE Medal Winner - Global Cheese Awards 2019!
First available in August 2019! As ever we have responded to our customer requests.
Many people were looking for something a little older/stronger then the 12 month Cave Matured but not as mighty as our Vintage Cheddar (minimum 20 months old). So, we have extended the maturation time of the 'old' Mature Cheddar so that it now provides that little EXTRA oomph! Hence the name - EXTRA MATURE. We think you'll like it.
Look closely at the photos and you'll notice evidence of calcium lactate crystals. The longer the maturation, especially when cheddar is matured in cloth, the more likely you'll have the added bonus of a slight crunch!
Made with unpasteurised cow's MILK
Looking for something to accompany your Extra Mature Cheddar?
Any of our chutneys and pickles with simple crackers will make a delicious cheese board. How about a few grapes or even a classic fig jam? Medium reds, such a Pinot Noir or a Shiraz with its peppery tones, make a great wine accompaniment. A classic Oaked Chardonnay would be a bold white to match the bite. A good craft wheat beer will also go down extremely well!
