Byron Bay Cheese Co. – Nashua Washed Rind 150g

Description & Tasting Notes

Nashua Washed Rind is a washed or ‘mixed’ rind soft cheese crafted from cows milk, similar in shape and size to a camembert. When young, the paste has a chalky texture with an acid taste, which matures into a very creamy and soft cheese with a buttery yellow centre. The rind is a mixture of whites, pinks and bright oranges.

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 pungent and complex with strong grassy flavours. The cheese will continue to ripen beyond 8 weeks but the pungent flavour and aroma may be off-putting to many people.


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.

Nashua Washed Rind is excellent served at room temperature with fresh crusty white bread or crackers. The strong flavour and aroma
mean that it can stand up to red as well as white wines, and even beers. Contrasting the cheese with some simple fruit such as apple and pear will work well.
