SÃO JORGE

SÃO JORGE ISLAND, AZORES

UNPASTEURISED

TRADITIONAL RENNET

One of the rare cow's milk cheeses of Portugal, from the beautiful island of São Jorge in the Atlantic archipelago of the Azores. On the island there is constant eighty-percent humidity, a volcanic soil composition, and a temperature between 12º and 25º C that is perfect for agriculture. The cheese has a lovely sharp nuttiness, redolent of cheddar, with a simmering undertone of the farm that extends the depth of flavour, and lends a persistent finish.
