The name Raclette means 'scraper' and refers to a group of gourmet cheeses which are melted to make a traditional Swiss dish of the same name. These are mountain cheeses made originally in the Vallais region but are now produced throughout Switzerland. The French also produce a fine Raclette.
The texture of the Raclette is very smooth and it seems to melt in the mouth even without heating. The aroma is strongly reminiscent of the farm with a mixture of fruit and wine aromas. The taste is usually equally strong, with rich wine-like notes, and a tangy accent. The cheese is made with pasteurized part-skim milk and aged over 60 days. A worthy recipient of a 3rd place at the 2012 competition of the American Cheese Society.
