Maffra Mature Cheddar

Maffra Mature Cheddar (also known as Maffra Red Wax Cheddar) is cheddar made using the spring milk sourced from the farm's Holstein Friesian cows. It is produced by Maffra Cheese Company at their dairy farm located in Gippsland dairy country.

The cheese is matured between 12 and 18 month during which it develops a distinctive smooth flavour, finishing off with slightly acidic and salty notes. The inside of the cheese is rich yellow with a creamy yet firm texture. As it ages, the cheddar will become crumbly.
