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 Dutch hard cheeses.
We cut and wrap Reypenaer V.S.O.P. in wedges of approximately 1 pound and 8 ounces.
Ingredients:pasteurized cow's milk, salt, cheese cultures, rennet, annatto.
