King Island Dairy Roaring Forties Blue

$37.99/Lb


Named for the blustering, westerly winds that blow across this island where this cheese is made, Roaring Forties Blue is full flavoured pasteurized cows' milk blue from Australia's King Island. A rindless cheese matured in pitch black wax helps this cheese retain its moisture, creating a smooth and creamy texture. A Roquefort style mold is used to impart lingering punch, which melts away to distinctly fruity, pear-like tanginess. From the lush green pastures of the island, where the cow's graze, a distinct grassy, nutty flavor is imparted into the cheese, a flavor great with a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

Pour a glass of...
  • Bourbon

    Think: Caramelly, crystalline cheeses have the strength to stand up to bolder booze. With sweet bourbon, these cheeses become almost like dessert.

  • Pinot Noir

    Lighter bodied and delicate. Old World style generally offers more funk, New World more fruit.

    Old World Pinot: Flavors of fresh cherries and raspberry balanced by a barnyard funk and high minerality. Sometimes has floral aromas, reminiscent of rose petal.

    Pair with: Almost anything! Works with funky Frenchies Epoisses and Langres, or mild natural rinds like Tomme de Savoie.

    New World Pinot: More sugary, with jam-like fruit, dried cherries, oak, and spice.

    Pair with: Full, fatty flavors. Alpines, cheddars, and Manchego.
