Reypenaer V.S.O.P. is truly a Dutch gourmet cheese showpiece. Magnificent and well deserved of the V.S.O.P. designation.
This delicious gourmet cheese from the Netherlands is matured for about 2 years and during that maturation sheds approximately 25% of its original weight. The white spots you will see on the surface indicate the start of mineral and protein crystallization. In comparison to most cheeses that are aged from a few weeks to a few months, this is a masterpiece long in the making. We also have a Reypenaer, aged for just 1 year and already tasting 'old'.
Aroma and flavor are superb. Sharp and tangy. Well recommended and arguably one of the greatest Goudas the Dutch every made.
We hand-cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces and we also have wedges of 4.7 ounces or a quarter wheel of approx. 5.5 pounds.
Ingredients:pasteurized cow's milk, salt, cheese cultures, rennet, annatto.
