Estero Gold Reserve

Produced on the Valley Ford Cheese Co.'s farm in California, Estero Gold Reserve is same as Estero Gold except that it is aged for a minimum of 16 months. As the cheese goes through a lengthier aging process, it develops a stronger flavour, a harder and dryer texture, similar to parmesan. Little granular "crunchies" known as crystals are very distinctive in this high-protein, extra-aged cheese. It is great cheese for grating and goes amazingly well with a glass of red wine.
