A butterfatty bomb of triple cream goodness that is the fruit of a collaboration between Old Chatham Sheepherding Co and Crown Finish Caves. Gatekeeper is a diminutive washed rind cheese puck made from a blend of rich sheeps’ milk and even richer cow cream! The young cheeses are washed with Graft Cider to impart a lightly pungent, leaf-pile in autumn quality to the fresh, chalky and tangy paste. Think slightly funky sheep butter with a rind. Aged 6-8 weeks. Pairing notes: Champagne, light crisp white wines like Viognier, Gewurztraminer, lighter red wines like Beaujolais, and Barbera, dry cider, Saison-style beer, Belgian-style beer
