Maffra Cheshire

Maffra Cheshire is an award-winning cheese produced by Maffra Cheese Company at their dairy farm located in Gippsland dairy country. It has a mellow but slightly salty flavour when young, but that evolves into a delightful sharpness with age. The crumbly texture goes well with a Ploughman's Lunch or on marmalade toast. Pair it with a light red wine or a crisp Chardonnay to set off the slight tartness of the cheese. Maffra Cheshire has won many awards including gold medal at the Fromage Du Monde, 2004, Sydney.
