Free from added proteins or other substitutes, this firm cheese is 100% made with pasteurized whole milk directly from farms in the region. Although it is firm, its texture is always soft and slightly crumbly. This texture changes as the Cheddar ages: from smooth and creamy, it becomes more crumbly and its slight flavour of hazelnut becomes more pronounced—it becomes sharper without losing its creamy touch.
Aged 1 year, its texture is crumbly, and its tangy hazelnut flavour is more assertive, creating a tingling sensation on the tongue.
Aged 2 years, its texture is very crumbly, but still creamy. It is pronouncedly sharp and tart to the palate. It has a strong hazelnut flavour, and its richness creates a sensation of warmth on the tongue.
