Produced by Tarago River Cheese Company of Australia, Gippsland Blue is a blue-vein cheese made on the lines of Italian Gorgonzola Dolce. Made from whole cow's milk, the cheese comes with a natural, orange crust dotted by blue-gray moulds. This farmhouse cheese offers a complex yet sweet and buttery notes with spiciness and tang of the blue vein that lingers on the palate. It is soft, creamy and runny in texture with a pungent aroma produced by the yeast and mould cultures. A medium strength blue cheese, Gippsland Blue is used as a table cheese, in grilling and salads.
