Milawa Cheese Company Blue
Milawa Cheese Company
Milawa Blue has been made by the Milawa Cheese Company since 1988, and is seen by many as the all-round, qualityAustralian blue cheese. Inspired by the classic Italian Gorgonzola, Milawa Blue has a soft, rich and buttery texture that comes with that wonderful punch of blue mould interlacing the curd, with the remaining cheese a pleasing, creamy yellow.
It is interesting to note that the dairy herd that produces the milk for this cheese is Illawarra Red. This is a relatively rare breed, established by crossing Aryshires, Devons and Dairy Shorthorns – a breed used to make the great cheeses of Northern England.
Apart from the rich mouthfeel and blue vein tang, Milawa Blue has an enduring sweetness and delicate floral aromas, making it a perfect match for Rutherglen fortified wines or even Brown Brothers’ Patricia Noble Riesling.
