Sternschnuppe, meaning Shooting star in German is a firm cheese from Käsküche Isny, in the Allgau region of the Bavarian Alps, Germany. Made using raw cow's milk, the cheese is aged for a minimum of 3 months. During ageing, it is brushed with red wine and herbs that gives a reddish brown rind to the cheese. The roughly textured rind is slightly sticky, while the golden paste is buttery and firm with eyes and fissures spread all over. Sternschnuppe has a mild, pungent aroma, rich, complex and meaty flavour with hints of caramel, nuts and broth.
