Manon is a chevre from Woodside, Australia made using milk specially sourced from Towerview and Oskjberg goat dairies with a blend of Allisford Farm garlic cloves and black pepper. Once the spices are added, the cheese is wrapped in vine leaves and further aged for 5-6 days. This delicious cheese has just the hint of garlic and pepper and warmth of the quality of milk used. Goes fabulously well with a warm crusty bread and a drizzle of olive oil.

The cheese has won many awards including gold medal at 2011 Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards, 2011 Brisbane Cheese Awards, 2012 Sydney Royal Cheese & Dairy Produce Show and many more.
