Finniss River Romano: Aged 15 mths

James’ Flat Pepato: Aged 15 mths

These cloth bound rinded cheeses are made by stirring the curds in an open vat. The unique flavour comes from the lipase enzymes that are added to the milk, and this matures to give a strong aroma and taste. These hard cheeses are excellent for shaving or grating.
