Regular price $28.00 Sale

Dorset is an incredibly talented shape-shifter of a cheese, melding a myriad of different sensory experiences into each tiny morsel you chew.  Cultured butter, earth, blanched asparagus and root vegetables are all things that come to mind as the smooth and slightly pungent paste melts in your mouth. Dorset is fashioned in the style of a washed rind tomme, and has a pliant, creamy texture and a golden ochre paste. The wheels are washed with brine as they age, giving the cheese a tawny orange rind that contributes a rich, bold, savory flavor. Approx.12oz each. Pairing notes: white wines like Gewurztraminer and Riesling, red wines like Barbera and Pinot Noir, beers like golden ales, Belgian tripels, and dark, malty dopplebocks

Dorset Mini pairs beautifully with Saucisson Sec, Figs with Black Tea Jam, and tart and tangy Cornichons.
