Long Paddock have been on my radar for a while since I first came across them in Castlemaine, Victoria. This cheddar is hard to come by because it gets snatched up as soon as it's available. I was lucky to get some recently and it did not disappoint. Has that lovely cheddar texture and bite. My only regret was that I didn't get enough of it - it was the star of the cheese board!
We were very lucky excited to be able to share this new Australian Clothbound cheddar with our customers. So happy to hear it was the 'star' of your cheeseboard.
Fingers crossed we will have another wheel arriving soon.
A mild smooth cheddar with a slight pleasing bight to it. Goes well with pickled small onions and a very good Stout.
You're not wrong, Alexander. We're chuffed to be able to stock this great local example of traditional Clothbound Cheddar. Long Paddock cheesemaker Ivan Larcherspent years working with respected English Cheddar makers and it certainly shows. Pickled onion and stout makes a great pairing indeed. We appreaciate you taking the time to write a review.
