"earthy but balanced savor to its seaweed-speckled orange and white rind that’s reminiscent of mountain tomme, but with the subtle savor of surf" -The Inquirer
True to its fantastical maritime namesake, Atlantis is a semi-soft cheese with rind that is washed in our local north Atlantic Ocean seawater, infused and speckled with various edible local North Atlantic seaweed varieties.
Made seasonally from late summer to fall, we cellar-age it for 45-60 days, during which glutamine in the seaweed imparts a deep umami flavor to make summer on the beach last just a little longer!
Atlantis is herbaceous with notes of apples and cabbage, with light, sea-like salinity. Easygoing and very approachable, it has a supple texture with funk that is never over the top. It is a great expression of fantastic grass-fed summer and fall milk in our North-Atlantic maritime region. Younger cheese will be more tart and chalky towards the center.
Atlantis wheels are large so it is sold online in pre-cut 4-oz wedges. Ingredients:
Pasteurized cultured whole milk, natural enzyme, salt, seaweed. Allergens: Milk
