Maffra Dargo Walnut is handmade cheddar produced by Maffra Cheese Company at their dairy farm located in Gippsland dairy country. It is made from a traditional English Red Leicester recipe but with crushed Dargo walnuts added for that sweet, nutty flavour. The cheese has a firm, slightly flaky texture with an attractive marbled pattern. Apparently, the marbling is due to the walnuts permeating their oils as the cheese matures. When the cheese is young, the marbling pattern won’t be seen.

This is a delicious dessert cheese that pairs perfectly with fresh berries or poached pears. Accompany it with chilled Chenin Blanc to enhance the cheese flavour.
