Divine Dairy Blue

I've recently noticed a few new cheeses produced under the label of Divine Dairy appearing on the shelves of late so naturally I've brought one home to try.

While the name is new the people behind it are not - they are the same people responsible for the Udder Delights range. The milk used for this cheese is sourced from a certified biodynamic and organic herd of Holsteins from Langhorne Creek and the cheese is produced in the Adelaide Hills.

On the label you'll see that it is described as a "French Style Blue" and out of the wrapping it has the feel of a fairly firm cheese with good levels of veining. It doesn't have an overpowering aroma.

To cut, the cheese is a bit crumbly - on tasting, it's quite rich and creamy. The blue isn't overly strong, it just adds a pleasing bite to the cheese. If you're just getting into blue cheese then I'm sure this style would appeal.
