Rotwein Bärgler Extra-Würzig

Affineur Walo Rotwein Bärgler extra-würzig is a hard Swiss cheese matured for 12 months in local red wine, giving it its black-brown bark and extra-spicy taste. Characteristically a real mountain cheese, this powerful, extra spicy cheese goes best with a glass of strong red wine.
