King River Gold is a washed rind cheese produced by David and Anne Brown of Milawa, a highly respected cheese company located in Victoria, Australia. Made using cow’s milk and animal rennet, it is one of the first cheeses introduced by the company.

Handmade, the subtle aroma and flavour of King River Gold is entirely unlike strong, washed rind cheeses. It has a soft-smooth paste with a slightly rough pinkish-orange rind and an earthy, almost smoky flavour.  Available in mini wheels and 800 / 600 grams logs. The cheese goes well with sweet wines. It is used as a table cheese and is delicious when melted over vegetables.
