King Island Dairy Roaring Forties Blue

This item is currently unavailable.


Named for the blustering, westerly winds that blow across King Island, Australia, where this cheese is made, Roaring Forties Blue is a flavorful cow’s milk cheese. The rindless wheels mature in black wax, which keeps them moist and ensures a smooth, creamy texture. The flavor profile—sweet, grassy, and nutty—benefits from the uniquely rich, sweet milk that results from the cows’ year-round consumption of the island’s verdant and salty pastures. A buttery port will complement this blue’s complexity.

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 orders@murrayscheese.com at least 72 hours prior to your desired ship date.

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.
