Pompeii is a cow's cheese from Woodside made using Friesian milk specially sourced from Meiglich Dairy in Mt Torrens just out of Woodside in South Australia. It is a semi hard, washed rind cheese with a characteristic layer of ash running through the centre. The cheese reveals a soft pliable texture with a clean herbaceous mouth feel, enveloped by a rusty red rind.
