Product Description

Waikato is also the name of the longest river in New Zealand and means ‘flowing water’ in Māori.

Created by Dutch cheesemaker Albert Alferink , it’s a washed curd cheese which means after the curds are cut, the whey is drained and replaced with warm water. This enables a deep, toffee-like sweetness to develop.

Maturation is on pine shelves for nearly two years during which time they develop a firm, dense, crumbly texture with crystals present. The flavour is rich, bright and herbaceous with a sweet finish and can only be achieved with fresh, pasture-based milk.
