Bruny Island 1792 washed rind cheese: Review
A benchmark washed rind cheese with a savoury meaty taste, and thick creamy mouthfeel. Bruny Island 1792 cheese is made from pastuerised cow’s milk, stored on Huon pine boards, and hand washed regularly in brine. Very soft, and has a pinky-orange rind with a strong sweaty socks smell typical of this type of cheese. It’s utterly moreish stuff, and even better with a chutney as an accompaniment as the sweetness from it will pair nicely with the savoury umani flavours and creamy mouthfeel.

Wine Matching | Wine Pairing
As it is a washed rind cows milk cheese try a fuller aromatic red such as a bigger pinot or nebbiolo, examples being Stargazer Rada or Vinea Marson Nebbiolo. Or try one of Monceau’s fabulous non-alcoholic pear or apple kombuchas in the style of cider. Or see my cheese and wine pairing guide for more options.
