McLaren is a Camembert from Woodside, Australia made using Friesian milk specially sourced from Kowalds Dairy at Mt Torrens Adelaide Hills.
This is a surface ripened cheese with a moist, succulent flavour typical of a Camembert cheeses. It has a pure white surface with a chalky centre when young, which goes on to become soft and custardy as it matures. At its optimum, the cheese develops a full rich flavour with just a slight hint of mushroom.
The cheese has won many awards including gold medal at 2010 Royal Queensland Food & Wine Show, 2010 Brisbane Cheese Awards, 2010 South Australian Dairy Awards and many more.
