Affineur Walo Rotwein Sennechäs is a hard Swiss cheese matured for 7-10 months in local red wine, giving it its black-brown bark and full-throttle flavour. Characteristically a Swiss cheese with sweet creamy back note and silky-smooth texture, this wine washed speciality imparts a pungent flavour to balance the sweetness. Either you can love or just can't stand it for its powerful flavour, but you can't ignore Affineur Walo Rotwein Sennechäs!

This is a dessert cheese in cold and hot dishes. The powerful but pure taste is perfectly suited to a strong, fruity white wine or red wine as well as many strong beers.
