High up in Northern Switzerland’s Appenzell valley, Walter Rass, of Challerhocker fame, crafts young wheels of raw cow’s milk he calls Tufertschwiller, and sells them only to his village. In an exclusive partnership with Murray’s, Walter is sending these mild wheels to us at 3 months for an extended stay in our New York caves. After aging for an additional 9 months in our alpine cave, our Cavemaster coaxes out sweet flavors of roasted hazelnuts and vibrant alpine grasses, with lush undertones of butterscotch and cocoa. The name Annelies is a tribute to Walter’s wife; toast her namesake with a crisp Grüner Veltliner or a fruity Pinot Noir.

The hands that wash the cheese may change, but the title remains the same - Cavemaster. Since the inception of the caves beneath Bleecker Street at Murray's, we've had an expert aboard whose sole purpose is to tend to the hundreds of cheeses lurking below the store. And every now and again, they'll create an entirely new cheese; either by washing, aging or coating, the result always impresses.
