Maffra Wensleydale is handmade cheese produced by Maffra Cheese Company at their dairy farm located in Gippsland dairy country. It is made from a traditional Wensleydale recipe that can be traced back to the 11th century. This young cheese has a crumbly, moist texture with a lemony flavour and underlying creaminess on the palate.

Wensleydale works well with sweet fruits but most of all is suited to an apple pie. Accompany it with a cider, sparkling wine or a sweet dessert wine to refresh its sweet aftertaste.
