Port Chester is cave-aged 18-20 months, highlighting the yogurt tang of raw milk with a sweet grassy undertone and a long grassy finish. Named after 5 Spoke Creamery's home town, this is a beautiful example of American artisan cheese making. Port Chester’s profoundly buttery flavor and complex texture– drier at the outer edges and creamier towards the middle of the wheel – make it a fantastic example of a small-batch domestic cheddar. Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect partner for Port Chester. It’s also terrific in salads or grated over pasta when you are looking for a little more zing!
Great cheese starts with great milk. At 5 Spoke Creamery (based in Port Chester, N.Y) all of their cheeses are hand made in the farmstead tradition (produced on site with a closed herd) from the raw milk of grass-fed cows. Their milk comes from Holstein cows that are free of pesticides and hormones. Raw milk from a grass-fed cow has a depth of flavor-or terroir-that cannot be duplicated.
5 Spoke Creamery's raw milk cheeses offer numerous health benefits. Their raw milk cheeses, all aged a minimum of 60 days, promote easier digestion and better calcium absorption; contribute to a stronger immune system; aid in combating allergies; are high in conjugated linoleic acid - the most potent cancer fighter and contain a perfect balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
