Emmental AOP Gold Label by Affineur Walo
Emmental, that most ubiquitous "Swiss" of cheeses from Switzerland, gets the royal treatment with extended aging in the cellars of the Von Muhlenen Family. Emmental Gold Label by Affineur Walo is aged for 14 Months, starting with a traditional Swiss Emmental cheese from select dairies. Emmental has a characteristic smooth, pale-yellow rind, revealing a profusion of walnut-sized wholes beneath the surface. Like many Swiss mountain cheeses, Emmental has a cooked, pressed paste, which gives the cheese a smooth, slightly springy texture, along with exceptional melting abilities. The flexible, pliant paste is a lovely deep yellow color from the use of raw milk. When you slice into a wedge of Emmental Gold Label by Affineur Walo, the aroma is sweet with tones of fresh-cut hay. The flavor is very fruity, not without a tone of acidity and it has a sweet, intense finish.

It is the passion of the Von Muhlenen Family to select the best cheese in Switzerland from artisan cheese makers, matured to perfection. Special cellars are chosen for the maturation of each type of cheese with the appropriate climate and cheese ripening cultures. With a range of cellars and aging caves spread across Switzerland, they are able to provide a unique aging environment that brings out the best qualities of each cheese. You can trust the quality of Affineur Walo. As part of their family's pride, they will never release a cheese that is not perfectly aged. The high quality standard has resulted in many awards, the most prestigious are the three world champion titles at the World cheese Awards in 1992, 2002 and 2005 and in the 2006 Wisconsin Judging. These are only the top awards, joining multiple medals awarded in specific categories.
