BRONZE medal 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 rare dual-coagulation process using both traditional French calf rennet and Iberian cardoon thistle flowers. This combination ties proteins together, which forms unique flavor and aroma compounds.
Aged for 35 days, the washed rind develops an orange hue over a well-defined lusciously smooth creamline. Younger cheeses will have a denser center core. Moonrise is creamy and balanced with notes of apple, cabbage, and a unique roasted peanuts-like finish. Moonrise is a great melter too!
Moonrise is sold as entire compact wheels, 4.5 oz/130g min. net weight
