Mt. Mazama Cheddar

Mount Mazama is cheddar made from a blend of cow's and goat's milk. It is aged for at least one year during which it develops a thick, slightly crumbly texture with small crystals throughout the paste. There's sweet cream flavour, tanginess from cows, and acidity from goats balanced by caramel and nutty notes. It is vegetarian friendly, gluten free and the milk is rBST free.

Mount Mazama would be a great addition to a cheeseboard. It pairs well with a sparkling white, beer or a Southern Oregon Merlot that can balance its complex texture and flavours.
