Roaring Forties Blue Cheese

Roaring Forties Blue

August 30th, 2016 Posted by Cheese Counter, Retail 0 thoughts on “Roaring Forties Blue”

Roaring Forties traverses the globe to reach TRiO’s cheese counter and we couldn’t be happier that it’s made the trip. Hailing from King Island, off the coast of Melbourne, Australia it has been unavailable to us for several years but has returned just this week.

King Island lies on 40 degrees latitude and the cheese is named for the strong winds that often sweep over the island. With mineral rich soils, cool annual temperatures, abundant rainfall and a consistent salt spray thanks to the constant westerly winds, the environment contributes to quality milk production. The herds that graze the windswept pastures produce purest, sweet milk perfect for cheese making.

The cheese is aged in its signature black wax rind which helps it retain moisture during aging resulting in a rich, creamy texture. The sweetness of the milk comes through in the cheese which is full bodied, sweet and nutty. Stop by the cheese counter and ask for a taste!
