The Flavor Experience
Grassy tang gives way to dense, savory, layered flavor. Slightly nutty and perfectly subtle in its sweetness.
Fourth generation cheesemakers create one of our favorite Alpine-style specimens at Almnäs Bruk in Sweden, a farm dating back to 1225. Multiple, unique breeds of cow roam the pastures including Vestlandsk Fjordfe, a nearly extinct line. The milk they produce imparts an undeniably unique and interesting flavor.
Plays nicely with any fruit-forward red, but is generally beverage-friendly and won't put up much of a fight with your favorite drink.
