Bruny Island Saffron Infused C2: Review

Limited release and enjoyable semi-hard cow’s milk cheese with a natural rind. Bruny Island’s Saffron Infused C2 is a raw cow’s milk cheese made made using the first lactation from local cows, and using locally farmed Tasmanian saffron. The paste is yellow-orange colour that is darker and firmer toward the rind while avoiding crystallisation, with a caramel dominated aroma. The texture is firm and allows a modest crumble. The saffron comes through in the mouth along with gentle nutty flavour. Very enjoyable and just that little bit different.

Wine Matching | Wine Pairing

Try complimenting the strong dairy flavours with a full bodied white chardonnay or viognier, or choose the acidity of a younger shiraz to cut through dairy.
