Affineur Walo Le Gruyère AOC Extra Mature

Affineur Walo Le Gruyère AOC Extra Mature is aged for at least 14 months in the caves used by the von Mühlenens since the last 150 years. The von Mühlenens are known to mature the best raw milk artisan cheeses in Switzerland to perfection.

The 'warm' caves at Gruyère help the cheese to achieve a crystalline texture and an intense, more rounded flavour. It is sweet in flavour with floral, fruity notes that grow and fill the mouth. Its silky texture and crunchy quality sets it apart from other Gruyères.

In 2014, Affineur Walo von Mühlenen was the most successful participant at the World Cheese Awards, winning 2 Super Gold, 3 Gold, 1 Silver and 3 Bronze Medals. Individually, Gruyère has won gold medal at the 2014, 2013 World Cheese Awards and Super Gold at the 2013, 2012 World Cheese Awards.
