You must be over 18 to purchase this product.
This Cheese & Wine Hamper includes:
Tunworth Camembert. Pasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
An English Camembert good enough to make a Frenchman weep: vegetal, porcini-flavoured and intense. The Courtyard Dairy selects only particular Tunworths that are more wrinkled, for a more intense flavour.
Hafod Cheddar. Unpasteurised cows’ milk, organic. 250g.
With only 65 Ayrshire cows, this clothbound Cheddar is made to a very traditional recipe, producing a cheese that is buttery and smooth, with that special Cheddar tang. At The Courtyard Dairy the best Hafod truckles are selected and further aged until 14-months old.
Young Buck. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Based on an old text on Stilton that Mike found. Different from modern-day Stilton, it is made outside the region with unpasteurised milk, a slow-gentle acidification of the curd and hand-ladling, but it retains some similarities – rubbing up, hastening (to encourage a ruby-red yeast rind) and piercing late to encourage blueing. It is then aged for 12-15 weeks before being split and sold by The Courtyard Dairy only at its peak.
Quince Paste. 200g.
A classic Membrillo (Quince) paste made in Spain. A great alternative to preserves and grapes with cheese.
Water Crackers. 100g.
A neutral water cracker that is deliciously crisp and toasty. A perfect accompaniment to any cheese.
Ciello Rosso – Nero d’ Avola – red wine (75cl, 13.5% abv).
Made by one of Italy’s foremost biodynamic winemakers, this classic Italian red is a medium bodied, with spicy and red-fruit aromas. Supplied and selected by Buon Vino.
All packed in the attractive wicker hamper (included) as pictured.
