Produced by the Cropwell Bishop Creamery, this blue takes its inspiration from various continental cheeses, perhaps most directly the Gorgonzola Dolce Cremificato, with its silky melting texture and milder profile. Matured for seven weeks, during which time it is turned and looked after in the cellars at Cropwell Bishop, the result is a well-balanced and supple blue, threaded with delicate blue moulds. Once we receive the cheeses we continue affinage in our own cellars, encouraging further breakdown of proteins and eventually deepening the flavours into savoury, almost meaty tones. A lovely way to finish a British cheese board without going directly for a Stilton.
