Lincolnshire Poacher

$39.99/Lb


The rolling hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds are the home of Lincolnshire Poacher, a rustic raw cow's milk cheese as similar to the classic English Cheddar as it is to an Alpine Comte. Nestled in between the hills, a herd of Holstein Fresian cows is producing milk year round for this firm, smooth aged cheese. Slowly aged and developing an earthy, stony rind, the Lincolnshire Poacher develops into toasted almonds and fresh grass, with a hint of tangy pineapple fruitiness. During the winter months, this transforms into a smokier, meatier flavor, which begs for a full bodied red like Cabernet Sauvignon. This farm cheese will stay on your palate long after you've polished your wedge away.
