Woombye Cheese Company Blackall Gold – Washed Rind Cheese 200g has a unique flavour.
This award winning washed rind cheese has a golden, orange coloured rind with a savoury, yeasty flavour becoming more robust as it ages.
Woombye Blackall Gold – Washed Rind, is named after the Blackall Mountain range that dominates the geography of the Sunshine Coast hinterland. This award winning cheese has a golden, orange coloured rind with occasional, small, fluffy clouds of white mould on the surface. Each cheese takes 12 days to mature, during this time it is turned daily and has a solution of brine, annatto and cultures applied by hand. These washings create the stunning orange rind that underneath a smooth, creamy textured paste is found. While the savoury, yeasty flavour of the rind is mild when young, a stronger more robust flavour develops as it ages.
Woombye Cheese was founded by Graeme and Karen Paynter in 2013 on the Sunshine Coast hinterland surrounded by rolling green hills, creeks and bushland. Pursuing their dream of making cheese, after fast paced corporate careers, they chose this beautiful, rural location to begin a new life. They were drawn to the lush pastures of the surrounding countryside knowing they would be able to source milk, fresh, every day from the herds of Jersey and Friesian cows at neighbouring dairy farms.
