Aroma

Strong and salty.

Taste

Salty but it has a smooth rounding. Initially you might think the salt is too overpowering but the finish reassures you.

Gooey

I has an enticing folded skin and and a pale yellow interior. The rind is edible.

Manufacturing and Salting Method

A high acid curd is pressed into small moulds and pressed. Then the small wheels are brine washed as they mature.

Perfect on a cheeseboard or smeared on crusty bread or grissini.
