Moyarra Reserve is a semi-hard cheese made with raw sheep milk from our dairy. At 6 months maturation, it has a golden, smear rind. The texture is close and smooth. A vibrant, floral aroma greets the senses, building into a complex caramel finish, with spice lingering on the back palate.
The only commercial cheese in Victoria (one of two in Australia) to be uncooked at any stage of the process, all life from our fresh, clean raw Moyarra ewes summer milk is encapsulated in this simple gourmet delight. While not a strong cheese, the flavour is unique and complex.
