Murray's Cavemaster Reserve Hudson Flower 12 oz

$35.00/Each






Our riff on Corsican classic, Fleur du Maquis. Young wheels of decadent sheep's milk cheese from nearby Old Chatham get a fresh fall coat in a secret blend of rosemary, lemon thyme, marjoram, elderberries and hop flowers. The bright herbs impart robust piney and floral aromas to welcome the season and make for an unforgettable flavor when combined with the rich, milky paste.

Pour a glass of...
  • Riesling

    This food-friendly wine ranges from super sweet to quite dry. Acidity, minerality, and aromas of tropical fruit are almost always present.

    Dry: Characterized by bracing acidity and stark minerality. Tropical fruit on the nose, stunningly balanced flavor overall.

    Pair with: This versatile wine works equally well with a fresh chevre (bringing out acidity) as it does a stinker like Willoughby (playing up the sweet/salty contrast).



    Sweet: The other end of the spectrum offers a cloyingly sweet, syrupy wine. Aromas of ripe peaches and tropical fruit dominate, along with floral, perfumed accents.

    Pair with: With something this strong it’s best to contrast the sweetness with something funky or salty: A pungent washed rind like Grayson or a punchy blue like Bleu du Bocage.

  • Rosé

    We love them all! Everything from light, crisp Provence style to deep and fruity Spanish Rosados. Don’t be afraid to enjoy rosé year-round, but we like the summer staple best with refreshing, mild cheeses that are great in warm weather.

    Pair with: Young chevres like Coupole and bloomy rinds like Moses Sleeper for the lighter stuff. A darker, fruitier rosé can stand up to a heavier cheese like nutty Pecorino Oro Antico. Sparkling rosé is a perfect match for Nettle Meadow Kunik.

  • Wheat Beers

    Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit

    Pair with: Bright, tangy goat’s milk cheeses like Westfield Capri and buttery bloomy rinds like Nettle Meadow Kunik.

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 a team of experts aboard whose sole purpose is to tend to the hundreds of cheeses we age ourselves. And every now and again, they'll create an entirely new cheese like Hudson Flower that becomes part of our Cavemaster Reserve series.
