Out Of The Blue - Cellar Reserve (Blue Cheese Style)
Our premium Out Of The Blue is an extra aged cashew cheese coated in blue mold. It is air aged, rubbed and flipped every day for 8 weeks before the ripening process comes to a close.
The multi-hued rind is composed of penicillium roqueforti, that loveable mold commonly used in blue cheese, which impart an insistent flavour to the rounds. The damp, cakey, acidic paste near the rind is fierce, with unmistakable overtones of lemon and black walnut. Inside, the creamy core remains moderately tart, lactic, soothing and with a peppercorn-like spiceness.
Out Of The Blue is suitable for antipasto and main entry and is equally well-matched with melon, pears, apples, spicy nuts and candied fruit. We suggests a smattering of olives and spicy cured tofu to accompany the cheese. The insistent flavour of the cheese is well pacified by sweeter wines such a Muscat, a sparkly Bonarda or a Grillo, just to mention a few.
