Byron Bay Cheese Co. – Brooklet Brie Wheel 1kg

Description & Tasting Notes

Brooklet Brie is a bloomy white mould cheese crafted from cows milk in a modern style. When young, the paste has a chalky texture with an acid taste, which matures into a soft cheese with a light buttery yellow centre. The paste will remain supple but not run like a traditional brie giving it an extended shelf life. The rind is pure white.

The cheese can be eaten 3-4 weeks after manufacture, but is at its best aged 6 to 8 weeks. This is when the paste has a consistency of soft butter. The taste is mild and mushroomy – a real crowd pleaser. The cheese will continue to ripen beyond 8 weeks and while still appreciated at this age, it may begin to become ammoniated and bitter.


Other Notes & Serving Suggestions

The milk is sourced from pasture fed, free range Friesian and Guernsey cows. They graze a summer pasture of kikuyu and tropical legumes, and a winter pasture of temperate rye grass and clover from May to late spring. Their diet is supplemented with up to 4kg of grain each day. The milk is naturally free from antibiotics, growth promotants or hormones and GMOs.

Brooklet Brie is excellent served at room temperature with fresh crusty white bread or crackers. It is best partnered with crisp light wines or fruit to contrast the rich creamy texture.
