Pleasant Ridge Reserve Extra Aged

Uplands Cheese Company

Pleasant Ridge Reserve Extra Aged
Regular price $23.50 Sale

This extra special, extra aged Pleasant Ridge generally makes its appearance each year in the fall after being aged for a minimum of 12 months. At Uplands, cheese is only made for 9-10 weeks out of the year when the cows are out on pasture. As the cheese ages, the smooth, milky, grassy, nutty flavors present in younger wheels morph into intensely fruity (sometimes pineapple-y, sometimes leaning more strawberry) flavors with a dash of meat stock and barnyard thrown in for good measure. The texture of Pleasant Ridge Extra Aged is also unique - after hitting the 12 month mark of aging, the wheels begin to exhibit little flecks of tyrosine, the crystally, crunchy bits that practically pop on your tongue when you eat it.

Taste alongside Pleasant Ridge Reserve to experience the nuances of affinage!
