Kaltbach Cave Aged Emmentaler AOP, also known as “hohlengereift”, has a distinct nutty aroma and a surprising softness. Aged for 12 months, 9 of which take place in the grotto or cave dug in molasse (soft sandstone), Kaltbach Cave Aged Emmentaler AOP is recognized by the marbled black-brown sheen of its crust that’s created by its lengthy exposure to humid (94%), cool (12°c) and particularly mineralized air of the grotto, and by the great care given to it by master cheesemakers.
