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 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 5.5 pounds.
Please note that the quarter wheel may vary slightly in total weight, you will be charged for the actual weight of the cheese that you will receive.
Ingredients:pasteurized cow's milk, salt, cheese cultures, rennet, annatto.
