Woombye Vintage Cheddar
In 2012, Karen and Graeme Paynter decided to embark on a lifestyle change that took them from their fast paced corporate roles overseas to the Sunshine Coast hinterland where they started Woombye Cheese Company. They were intent on settling in a rural community where they could source premium milk from neighbouring dairy farms, knowing that quality cheese production started with quality milk. Jersey and Friesian milk, collected from three local farms is used to make a range of surface ripened cheese.
This 20-month matured cheddar has a lingering acidity or sharpness characteristic of the vintage style, along with a crumbly texture when cut.
