Neal's Yard Dairy Montgomery's Cheddar
A world-renowned standout in the cheddar family, Neal's Yard Dairy Montgomery's Cheddar is rich, earthy, and meaty. Massive cylinders of fresh cow’s milk curds from Montgomery Farm in Somerset, England, are wrapped in linen and rubbed with lard before aging for over a year. From there, affineurs at London’s Neal’s Yard Dairy choose the nuttiest, crumbliest wheels to serve in their shop—and to send to Murray’s headquarters in New York City. Try this gorgeous cheddar with Murray's Genoa Salami and Effie’s Oatcakes.
Unless noted otherwise, Murray's cheeses sold by the lb ship in multiple 0.5 lb increments. To request a whole wheel, please contact the Murray's team at firstname.lastname@example.org at least 72 hours prior to your desired ship date.

Just the Facts
ChardonnayThis wine is all over the map – literally! Flavor varies widely depending on where and how it’s made.
Old World Chardonnay: crisp and minerally, with flavors of apples and roasted pears.
Pair with: Fresh or bloomy rind cheese, like Delice de Bourgogne
New World Chardonnay (USA, warmer climates): richly buttery and oaky, heavy notes of vanilla, brown butter, and tropical fruits.
Pair with: Slightly stronger cheese like sweet Tickler cheddar, or a mild washed rind.
Oxidized Chardonnay: When Chardonnay is intentionally exposed to air it is “oxidized.” Common in the Jura mountain region, this wine is almost sherry-like with spicy, nutty flavors.
CiderBrie and apples, cheddar and apples – both delicious! Why not extend that deliciousness to apples in liquid form? Enjoy cider and cheese for a pairing to remember.
English style: drier, more like a beer, with nice acidity.
Pair with: Just about anything but we love it with firm natural rind cheese, like Landaff.
Basque/Normandy : barnyardy and funky, but still with a little sweetness.
Pair with: A beefy washed rind, like Grayson to contrast the sugar and bring out the funk.
Pale Ales & IPAsHoppy Beers - Pale Ale, IPA, Amber, Red Ale
Hops, glorious hops! Think of hops as the seasoning for beer: they lend the bitter yin to balance malt’s sugary yang. In IPAs and other hoppy beers this humble flower takes center stage. Flavors range from grassy to grapefruit, earthy and dry to resinous pine, depending on which hop varietals are used.
Pair with: Cheeses with enough body to stand up to the bitterness, like clothbound cheddar or aged Gouda.
