Peaks Cheese Mountaineer: Review

Lovely mountain style semi-hard cheese from the northern Victoria. Peaks Cheese Mountaineer is made from the milk of Normande cows from a single sustainable Alpine farm, and from vegetarian rennet. It is aged 3-4 months before release. The paste is yellow and interspersed with small holes, and has a good intense smell about it with little ammonia present there. In terms of flavour, there are savoury, caramel, nutty and fungal notes. Very enjoyable. Can be melted raclette style.

You’ll need to go a cheese specialist or certain farmer’s markets. A list of stockist is available on Peaks Cheese website. I bought this cheese from Harper and Blohm. They have online delivery.
