Heidi Gruyere is one of finest farmhouse cheeses developed by Heidi Farms in Australia. Crafted to perfection, using traditional techniques, this Gruyere variation is marvelously smooth and nutty in flavour with a robust aroma.
A pure vegetarian gruyere made from pasteurised cow's milk, it is matured for at least nine months or sometimes longer to achieve the correct texture consistency. When young, the texture of this cheese ranges from moist to smooth transcending to concentrated and flaky when well aged. Because of its firm texture, it is often compared to a French Beaufort. The cheese has a fat content of 45%. The cheese is available in truckle shaped barrel of 30 kgs. It is one of Australia’s most awarded cheeses and has won Grand Champion Cheese at the 2002 Australian Grand Dairy Awards.
Because it melts well and has a great texture, Heidi Farm Gruyere is ideal for cooking, grilling or using in a fondue, soufflé or quiche. A ripe and crisp wine such as Chardonnay will pair well with Gruyere.
