Prom Country Moyarra Myrtle: Review
Delightful sheep’s milk feta-style cheese from Gippsland. Prom Country Moyarra Myrtle is a farmhouse cheese. by which I mean the sheep are owned, reared, and milked by the cheesemaking family in southern Gippsland, Victoria. It is a spreadable white cheese sold in jars immersed in olive oil, and with a sprinkling of lemon myrtle and mountain pepper berries found around the farm. As a result of the commitment from the family, the farmhouse environments there is a purity in this cheese. The taste has a lovely freshness and cleanliness to it along with lovely herbal and mineral flavours with just the right acidity. It has a nice mildness to it too and avoid being too ‘sheepy’. Uses non-animal rennet. A new go-to cheese for me.

Wine Matching | Wine Pairing
Soft sheep milk cheese deserves a white wine and matching against the natural sweetness it has. For an alcoholic match try Soumah Estate Viognier, or the non-alcoholic McGuigan Zero Chardonnay. Or see my cheese and wine pairing guide for more options.
