The Apostle Whey Cheesemaker Pack!
"Fresh, Farmhouse Favourites"
THIS IS A PRE-ORDER FOR SENDING FROM END JULY 2020
We love working with talented cheesemakers with a strong passion for what they do, the environment and their animals. Apostle Whey Cheese is a standout. With a long history in dairy farming, they made the transition to cheesemaking two decades ago and boy we are so glad they did! Following traditional recipes and using milk from their farm, you get a flavour of tradition, mixed with the unique twist the Great Ocean Road region delivers. In this special pack, we include four of their best cheeses for you to enjoy.
Who is Apostle Whey?
Just a short drive from the Twelve Apostles, Apostle Whey Cheese is a big tourist drawcard for the local region. Apostle Whey Cheese is home to an array of award-winning, delectable cheeses - all handmade! They use milk from their herd of Aussie Red/ Jersey cows to craft the cheeses. It's easy to see that the business is a labour of love that combines two of Julian and Dianne Benson passions – sustainable farming and boutique, artisan produce.
What are the cheeses?
This pack includes four cheeses that will thrill you and your tastebuds - every single one has incredible flavour and texture.
This is a delicious blue that has so many sensations in the texture that you'll be pulling some wow faces when tasting it for the first time! Bolte’s Bonanza is a blue vein that has been matured in wax, this procedure retains the moisture in the cheese and changes the flavour and texture of the cheese. What you get is very smooth on the palate tending to a slight sweetness. Warning - it's very moreish, as we found out! We polished it off in a matter of minutes!
Moo over any old brie, this is a Grand Dairy award-winning Brie. Southern Briez is a very creamy white mould cheese with a clean and fresh taste when young. Let it mature longer for a stronger, nuttier flavour.
This Plain Havarti style cheese is the base cheese for Apostle Whey Cheese's Heytesbury Harvest range. It won the highest-scoring semi-hard cheese at the DIAA awards in Melbourne 2014. It is a very smooth, creamy cheese – tending towards cheddar flavour as it matures. Based off a Danish recipe this semi-hard cheese has a very smooth mouthfeel and mild flavour.
Like the classic Havarti, but featuring a distinct black pepper flavour, this Heytesbury Harvest cheese is great for cooking or in salads. While black pepper has an incredible flavour, Apostle Whey wants the cheese to be the star, so they don’t overpower the cheese with the flavours added. They are simply there for an extra tone on the palate.
Blessed are the cheesemakers.
