Shaped like a flying saucer and uniquely exquisite, this raw sheep milk wheel is made by the Fletcher family's Ram Hall Dairy in the West Midlands of England. Although Berkswell is available for most of the year, its flavor profile changes dramtically. The first wheels made in spring his the market around June and have an incredible fruitiness, exactly (we swear) like wild strawberries. The late season wheels are biscuity and musky, with more of the gamy, lanolin notes we like less. Dense and smooth, with the occasional crystalline fleck, this cheese is unreal tasty, and worth every penny. Selected by Neal's Yard Dairy, we play up the fruitiness with smoky, cherry Pinot Noir.
