Cheese is a product of its environment. In New Zealand, rich, fertile valleys watered by pure mountain streams and soft, gentle rain create endless grazing pastures of lush, sweet green grass year round. This, plus a cool, temperate climate ideal for the slow, natural aging of the finest cheddar cheese, gives Mainland its unique and distinctive flavor.
Hand-selected by Mainland's Cheese Masters and set aside to age naturally for 24 months, this cheddar has strong, piquant flavors with a hint of cream in the finish and a crumbly texture which can only be achieved with the finest of cheddars. Pair it with a dark ale, Port or red wine, served on the deck in the summer or in front of the fire when it's cold outside.
