Jasper Hill Farm Alpha Tolman
Alpha Tolman is made using the traditional Alpine methods of cooking and pressing the curds during cheesemaking to achieve a tight, elastic texture and robust, complex flavors. The wheels are then washed with brine to infuse them with a funky edge. Named after a philanthropic diary farmer in Greensboro, Alpha Tolman is Jasper Hill's ode to their community. Young wheels have milky, fruit and nut flavors and a smooth mouth feel. Mature wheels are more bold and meaty with amplified butter and caramelized onion flavors carried by a rich and crystalline texture. Try pairing with a
robust Ale, plummy red wine, or onion jam.
