Cranberry Wensleydale Cow’s Milk Somerdale, England
This cheese has been made in Wensleydale, North Yorkshire since 1150 by Cistercian monks. These monks continued to make the cheese until the dissolution of their monasteries in 1540. A Wensleydale is creamy-white in colour has a supple, crumbly, moist and flaky texture. The flavour is mild, clean, and slightly sweet with hints of wild honey and fresh acidity. As it ages the cheese develops a fuller, deeper flavour as well becomes firmer. The addition of cranberries makes it even more delicious.
Wine Pairing: Shimmer Frizzante, Viognier or Rose
