A delicious washed rind cheese in a delicious square format. Grayson cheese is named for Grayson county Virginia - a beautiful spot nestled high up in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The owners of Meadow Creek Dairy are traditionalists when it comes to raising their herd, only making cheese when the cows are on pasture, from April to October. The result: an intense, beefy, and pungent grass-fed cheese whose straw-colored paste reflects all the goodness of the Virginia mountain grass the cows are munching on. When extremely ripe, Grayson can achieve the consistency of buttercream frosting… an eating opportunity not to be missed! Aged for a minimum of 60 days, but generally released for sale around 90 days. Pairing notes: Crisp white wines like Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Erbaluce, Malvasia, lighter red wines like Barbera, Pinot Noir, Sauternes, Amber/Red Ales, Porters, Ciders
