Murray's Cave Aged Original Stockinghall Cheddar

BEST OF SHOW AT ACS 2019!

Stockinghall Cheddar is a uniquely Murray’s creation, crafted in collaboration with Old Chatham Creamery. Very young wheels are cloth bandaged and then aged for one year in Murray’s Natural Rind Cave. Recognized by American Cheese Society as the 2019 Best of Show winner, this cheese combines meaty bacon and sour cream flavors with surprising hints of pineapple. A cheese this rich in flavor deserves to be paired with an equally flavorful Merlot or stout and given a place of honor on a cheese plate complete with Murray’s Genoa Salami and Apple Butter.

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...
  • Chardonnay

    This 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.

    Pair with: Play up the bolder flavors with a more complex or funky cheese. Almost any Alpine cheese, like Comte, or earthy aged goat cheese like Chevrot make a great match.

  • Merlot

    A smooth and medium-bodied wine with a more rounded flavor than other reds. Dark fruits are present but with minimal tannins and no noticeable spice.

    Pair with: Earthy tommes like Toma Walser, mellow Fontina, or a lightly aged goat cheese like Leonora.


  • Scotch Whiskey

    Scotch whisky is every bit as diverse, intricate, and nuanced as cheese, so it helps to know which whiskies go best with which cheeses. Unique and complex, the sweetness can enhance the caramel and toffee notes for which cheese is so beloved.
