Apéro Box – April 2022

Featuring the Canton of Appenzell Ausserrhoden

Urnäscher Weinmutschli

Urnäscher Milchspezialitäten

Canton:  Appenzell Ausserrhoden

Urnäscher Weinmutschli

Characteristics :   A semi-hard cheese made with red wine and aged for 5 to 7 weeks

Type of Milk :  Mountain milk, pasteurized cow’s milk

Tasting Notes :  Rich flavors of red wine come through with this creamy cheese.  It has a light woody taste and the aroma reminds us of the inside of a wine barrel.  The cheese is soaked for a few days in a fine red wine which imparts its complex taste.  Some of the wine crystals settle on the edible rind which is a nice textural component when enjoying this cheese.

Serving Suggestion :  A beautiful apéro cheese with a wine-colored crust looks stunning on a cheese board.  Perfect to enjoy with a variety of red or white wines!

Urnäscher Edelweiss Paprika-Pfeffermantel

Urnäscher Milchspezialitäten

Canton:  Appenzell Ausserrhoden

Urnäscher Edelweiss Paprika-Pfeffermantel

Characteristics :  A soft, cream cheese coated with spices and aged 10 days

Type of Milk :  Mountain milk, pasteurized cow’s milk

Tasting Notes :  This soft mountain milk cheese with a bloomy white rind is enrobed with cracked black pepper and paprika.  The special crust adds a kick of spice and texture to the creamy, soft dough.  We love how the spice does not overwhelm the cheese and you can still taste the mountain milk.

Serving Suggestion :  Spread on top of a crusty baguette and pour yourself a glass of your favorite full-bodied red wine. Heaven!
