Woodside Cheese Wrights

This cheese was developed to showcase the freshness of our Chevre and the contrast the ash gives to the surface and the flavour.

Tasting Notes

Ash reduces the acidity on the surface of the cheese offering a complex mouthfill.

Recently winning a gold Medal at The Sydney Specialists Cheesemakers Show in May 2005, judges commented "Woodside swag has the perfect balance of creaminess and acidity. We like its sharpness, this cheese has a surprisingly interesting mouthfill."

Great on a cheeseplate, smeared on lavosh or simply eaten on its own with seasonal fresh fruit and a glass of crisp Chenin Blanc.

Tissue wrapped and Cryovac packed this cheese has a 6 month shelf life if kept in refrigerator unopened, the Swag is a small 150g pack which can be used up quickly once opened.

I named this cheese swag as it resembled a small swag when we first began to develop it.
