Isle of Wight Blue

£8.95
Isle of Wight Blue – Made by  Richard Hodgson, on the Isle of Wight

First made in 2006, this naturally rinded soft cheese is made with pasteurised milk. It is blue veined and is sold at 3-5 weeks of age. It has a 8 week shelf life. Being hand-made, the sizes have a minimum weight of 180g but are approximately 210g, some slightly larger some slightly smaller. When the cheese is sold at 3-4 weeks it has a relatively mild blue flavour but expect the IOW Blue to accelerate quickly so that by the time it is at the end of its Best Before date, the flavour will be a lot more spikier than when it was young.

Being naturally rinded, it is covered in green, blue, grey and white moulds. These give the cheese bags of character and the variety of surface moulds that grow on the rind will make it stand out on any cheeseboard.
