Moonrise took BRONZE at the 125th International Cheese Awards in the UK, 2022
Moonrise is a fun, approachable, pocket-sized washed-rind cheese. We make it in a unique dual-coagulation process using both traditional French calf rennet and Iberian cardoon artichoke thistle flower enzyme; a rare combination that helps us capture proteins differently, which builds up some great flavor and aroma compounds.
Aged for 35 days, the washed rind wheels develop an orange rind while this method develops a smooth, silky texture beneath. The resulting cheese is creamy and balanced. Grassy, meaty with a surprising finish reminiscent of peanuts. Moonrise is a great melting cheese.
Moonrise is sold in entire wheels, weighing 4.5 oz min.
Pasteurized cultured whole milk, enzymes (French calf rennet, Cardoon artichoke thistle), salt. Allergens: Milk
