Midnight Moon is a matured, gouda-style cheese produced in the Netherlands and sold under the Cypress Grove label. Made from pasteurized goat's milk, the cheese is aged for six or more months to produce a dense and smooth ivory-coloured paste that develops a slightly granular mouth feel as it matures off to the 12 month stage. Flavours are of lovely brown butter with intense caramel undertones.
Serve the cheese with Belgian Dark, Stout or Trippel or wines such as Syrah, Zinfandel or Sweet Sherry.
The cheese has won Gold award at World Cheese Awards 2014, Best in Class, World Championship Cheese Contest, 2010 and Best New Product in Show, NASFT sofi Awards, 2002.
