Waratah - Sheep Milk

A special treat for serious cheeselovers!

Pure sheep cheese, oozing with gentle, complex flavours. A cheese that displays the finest qualities of sheep milk, finishing with the back-palate softness so typical of sheep cheese. Soft smear-ripened cheese with a luscious texture and delectable flavours, lingering on the palate with a final sweetness. The golden aura of this style develops naturally from flora associated with vineyards. The aroma and flavour integrate and intensify with age, and the warmer the cheese becomes, the more powerful is this effect. Bring to room temperature for one hour before serving. May become sticky, stinky and extreme when fully mature.

Black Sheep Log - Sheep Milk

Rich Farmhouse Sheep Cheese dusted with vine charcoal

Log - Size: 5x10cm long - Weight: approx. 150g

Distinctive - Fudgy - Smooth - Dense - Nutritious

 

Black Sheep is unique farmhouse-style cheese rarely seen in Australia, named after some of the coloured Moyarra ewes that supply the milk. Black sheep are known to have a particular character  and attitude than stands them apart from the flock.

Each log is gently hand ladled from 500ml of ewes’ milk curd, and lightly salted.
A melt-in-the-mouth, dense, creamy cheese with an attractive, mottled , silvery-white rind that develops  after 2 weeks' maturation, as the distinctive flora grows through the layer of vine charcoal - house-made from Gippsland Wine Company (Loch) Cabernet vine prunings, and dusted lightly onto the surface. This neutralises some lactic acid which sweetens the cheese, and assists development of the wrinkly rind.

 

Serving
May be enjoyed from 2 weeks old (mild with yoghurt-like, fresh flavour), but beyond one month the brittle core softens throughout to become a spicey, oozing cheese.  Allow  it to warm well at room temperature before serving.
Match with full-bodied red wine and fresh (or preserved) fruits.

Poppet - Sheep Milk

 
Poppet
Poppet

Fresh lactic curd pyramid coated with savory herbs.

press to zoom

Traditional pyramid with herb. Vegetarian rennet.

 

Farmhouse-style sheep cheese with a creamy, fine texture, a pure white body and virtually no rind. As it gets older, a light bloomy rind develops. It is sprinkled with seasonal herbs.

 

Poppet of course is a word of endearment, and it may well be a case of "love at first taste". It had to be called Poppet, considering the coal mining history of the Gippsland region and the shape of the poppet head that lifted the coal to the surface.

 

The shape of Poppet actually promotes a silky-soft texture, a perfect match for the subtle herb flavours that permeate the cheese.

 

Pyramid (semi-matured) - Seasonal - Weight approx. 180g

 

Serve with Chardonnay, or

Loch Brewery Golden ale

 

 

Distinctive - Creamy - Smooth - Dense - Nutritious

 

Sheep Sensation is a unique, farmhouse-style cheese. A slow-make technique develops a fine, close texture with a creamy, luscious mouth feel. The body is covered in a wrinkled, bloomy white rind. The flavour is distinctively different - a balance between sweet and sour, and long on the palate. Melts in the mouth. The aroma is of the farm, reminiscent of freshly-cut grass.

 

Sheep Sensation can be enjoyed at any stage, from fresh (3-5 days), to creamy (14 days) to semi-matured (3-4 weeks) to aged (2-3 months), when it develops a waxy-smooth, drier texture with concentrated flavours and a peppery finish.

 

Sheep Sensation has amazing characteristics, controlled by the rind flora, which allow it to mature gracefully into a parmesan-style grating cheese. The moulds slowly draw moisture out of the cheese. This moisture should be allowed to escape unless you are looking for a more pungent cheese. For this to happen, wrap in waxed parchment.

  Round - Size: 8cm diameter - Weight: approx. 170g

 

 Serve with Semillon-Sauvignon Blanc or dessert wines, depending on the age of the cheese, or Burra Brewery pale ale.

A delicious treat for serious cheeselovers!

"The anticipation has never be more intense than for this tasting match, and it was spot-on! Our new ale-washed cheese BrewersGold with its subtle, yet lingering, malty aftertaste nestled perfectly with the full flavoured darkale
While still a delicate, moist cheese, residual savoury lactic freshness offsets the richness of this handcrafted ale."

 
Powlett Picnic - Cow Milk
20190506_145841.jpg

The 'Picnic' style was developed exclusively at Prom Country Cheese to complement the local wines. Powlett Picnic is an intriguing semi-soft style in the "apline cheese" tradition. The texture slices well, with a mild but lingering flavour, and clean, sweet finish. It exhibits the clean, rich flavours of the Wattlebank Park Farm milk, where cows graze along the Powlett River, fed by the catchment waters flowing from the Moyarra hills upstream.

 

Powlett Reserve is a more mature version, matured with a natural rind that has a light coat of gray mould. Texturally a robust, hearty cheese, while the taste remains mild with a clean savoury finish.  Serve on a neutral cracker with olive tapenade or pesto. An ideal melting cheese.Made in a 2.7kg wheel.   Perfect for picnics with a light red wine, such as Pinot Noir.

 
Granny's Blue - Cow Milk

Each 2kg wheel of Granny’s Blue captures the clean flavours of 18 litres of rich cow milk from Wattlebank Park Farm in South Gippsland, where the catchment waters flow down out of the Moyarra Valley, the home of Prom Country Cheesery.

 

It displays a grey-white, crusty rind with a dense spread of blue filaments. Although the structure seems crumbly, the mouthfeel is mild, buttery and soft. Ideal for salads, crumbled over pasta, or served with fruit and nuts.  Wedges are cut from a 20cm diameter, 2.1kg wheel.

    

Complemented by fortified wines such as liqueur muscat and port. Also snuggles up nicely to a buttery Chardonnay.
