Yarrawara Raw Milk Cheese: Review

Yarrawara is another vegetarian-friendly sheep’s milk cheese made by Pecora in New South Wales. A few weeks ago I reviewed their Bloomy soft cheese. I liked this cheese even more. It is a zippy Spanish style semi-hard with herbaceous, citrus and floral notes with an exceptionally clean flavours and a lingering finish. If you are familiar with manchego then this will get you in the ballpark. It is at the harder end of semi-hard since it just about cuts cleanly from the block. If it were any harder then it would crumble and entering into parmesan-like textures.

Wine Matching | Wine Pairing

Dry sherry, medium bodied red wines with a slight savouriness such as a sangiovese, or Chrismont sagrantino
