Goldfields Cheese Buangor Blue: Review

Inspired by England’s Shropshire Blue; Goldfields Farmhouse Buangor Blue is a crumbly blue cheese made using Jersey cow’s milk turned orange. That dramatic orange colour comes from the annatto that is added even through this does not change the flavour. Those flavours are strong contain prominent mineral, herbaceous, and fermented flavours, along with salt and acidity. As a result it tastes somewhere between an English Stilton and a Danish Blue.

This cheese packs a flavour punch and with its bright orange colour with liven up a cheese platter.

Wine Matching | Wine Pairing

A powerful blue like this needs to be matched by equal power, and some sweetness to cut through the salt. Try a port-style wine or a Rutherglen sticky. Or see my cheese and wine pairing guide for more options.

Where to Buy

I got mine from Melbourne’s wonderfully named Obelix & Co. Goldfields Farmhouse also list their stockists on their website.
