Boatshed Cheese Buffalo Blue: Review

Enjoyable soft cheese from Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. Boatshed Cheese Buffalo Blue keep all the blue stuff on the outer rind, leaving that ivory white paste pure. The taste and aroma is very herbal, backed up by some minerality, and a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. It’s a bit different from most blue cheeses, and may make some new fans from people that have never liked blue cheeses before.

Made with non-animal rennet.

Wine Matching | Wine Pairing

Although blue cheeses are often wine matched with ports and big reds I think in this case they overwhelm the delicate light buffalo milk cheese. Try an off-white for fruity intense white wine such as Soumah Estate Viognier. Or see my cheese and wine pairing guide for more options.

Where to Buy

Boatshed Cheese list their stockists on their website. I bought mine from the factory cafe in Dromana, in Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.
