Avonlea Clothbound Cheddar (Prince Edward Island)

  • $7.50


Avonlea Clothbound Cheddar has its roots from the Orkney Islands, north of Scotland. Aged for at least 12 months, this English Style cheddar is made from the milk of cows from the rolling countryside of Prince Edward Island. All of the milk comes from small local farms around P.E.I and given that no point on the island is no more than 20 miles or so from the sea, with the salt air and the iron-rich red soil, all these things combine to add flavor and quality to the product. Each wheel is lovingly wrapped and turned with care as it ages in our cave.
Avonlea demonstrates a firm and slightly dry and crumbly pate. The colour varies according to the season and diet of cows with cheeses made during in winter being faint than in summer. The cheese has rich, hearty, savoury flavours of earth and mushrooms, underlined by a fruity tang.
