Quickes Oak Smoked Cheddar
Quickes Oak Smoked Cheddar Cow’s Milk Devon, England
The Quicke family have been crafting cheese for the last two centuries in the small village of Newton St.Cyres. Aged for a minimum of 14 months the cheese is moist and slightly crumbly with a balanced richness, hints of pasture and lingering acid tang. A well-flavoured mature cheddar, 12-15 months in age, is specially selected to be naturally smoked for 3-4 hours over oak chips from the farm’s woodland. The truckles are cut into 1.5Kg pieces prior to smoking as this ensures the flavour will infuse throughout the cheese. No artificial flavourings are added.
Wine Pairing: Chardonnay or Cabernet Sauvignon
