Section 28 Monte Diavolo: Review
Sooooo moreish. Section 28 Monte Diavolo is an ivory coloured lightly washed mould hard cheese infused with cracked Australian native pepperberries. As a result it is only produced at certain times of the year aligning with with pepper berry availability. The rind has slightly fermented or mushroom based aroma. That fermented element follows through into the palate which also has nutty, umani and peppery aspects. The pepper is in check and not the slightest bit overbearing. Good acidity.
This cheese was on a platter with three other cheeses and disappeared first. Very good stuff.
