Alpine Gold

Alpine Gold is a semi-soft cheese made from cow's milk, made by The Farm House Natural Cheeses based in British Columbia, Canada. This cow cheese is ripened for over 6 weeks at about 56 degrees Fahrenheit temperature. During ripening the wheels are washed 3 times a week with brine that develops a golden-orange rind. This straw-coloured cheese with a semi-soft interior has grassy and floral notes.

Accompany it with Riesling or Gewurztraminer, or golden ale.
