Barry Charlton specialises in blue cheese. We affectionately refer to him as Australia’s ‘Master of Blue’.
After a reign of success with cow’s milk cheeses, Barry created Riverine Blue, a cheese made from 100% buffalo’s milk. This strikingly white, creamy milk comes from a modest herd of Riverine Buffalo that graze nearby. After the curds are set, they are placed in moulds to drain before spending two month’s ripening in specially built maturation rooms overlooking Wilson’s Prom.
Riverine Blue is the first of its kind made in Australia and one of only a few buffalo’s milk blue cheeses made in the world. It has a complex savoury flavour and the smooth, firm texture. Blue-green ribbons provide pockets of delicious salty blue flavour within the porcelain paste.
