Opus 42

Opus 42 is semi-firm cheese made using aromatic cultures such as flora danica and penicilium candidum. It is aged for 3-6 months during which it develops a mottled natural rind with a pale yellow paste that is slightly sharp and nutty. The aroma is yeasty complemented by distinct notes of cellar, earth and lemon.
