Ford Farm | Wookey Hole Cave Aged Cheddar (PDO)

Ford farm

$15.00 Sale price

Our West Country Farmhouse Cheddars are given extra special ‘cave-ageing’ treatment which bestows them with their unique flavour and character.

Our cheddars are carried by hand two hundred feet underground into the Wookey Hole Caves in the Mendip Hills where they are left to mature.  The constant temperature and humidity of the Caves offers ideal conditions for storing and ageing cheddar and the porous nature of the cheese enables it to take on the distinctive earthy and nutty flavours from the atmosphere.

 What is PDO Status?

 

logo-protected-designation-of-origin-award-large

As a guarantee of authenticity and origin, Ford Farm Cheddar has been awarded the world renowned Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) accreditation.

Only cheddars made from locally sourced milk to traditional methods in cheddar-making country can be bestowed with this prestigious accolade in order to protect their authenticity and geographical location.

Country of Origin : UK

Milk Variety : Cows'

Style : Hard

Unpasteurised : No

Ingredients: Pasteurised Cow’s Milk (99.6%) / Salt / Microbial Rennet / Starter culture

 

Tasting notes

The texture is firm and the cheese is cream-coloured. The aroma is a complex mix of sweet, creamy, farmy and earthy. The flavours are big, robust and well rounded, with competing notes such as sweet and salty, or earthy and tangy.  The Caves’ atmosphere bestows the cheddar with an additional, highly-distinctive, earthy and nutty flavour. Not suitable for vegetarians.

Pairing Notes

The robust, sweet and nutty nuances of Wookey Hole Cave aged Cheddar is perfectly complemented by full-bodied red wines with a strong flavour. Try a classic Claret from Bordeaux in France such as Chateau Noaillac AC Medoc or Cabernet Sauvignon from South Africa like The Visionnaire, Holden Manz from Franschhoek.
