If it is delightful cheese slices you were looking for looking for on the Say Cheese Wine Trail near Hermann Missouri, then Robller was your desired destination. They featured three separate cheeses from Cool Cow Cheese, which offers authentic and homemade cheeses from their Jersey cows on their own farm.
This cheese is all about the creaminess of the mild produced by their Jersey cows. any place cream is called for you can fit this cheese in. This cheese begs to be with fruit, the acidity in the fruit or wine matches well with the acidity in the cheese. Acid in the cheese is essential for cheese flavor and preservation, the salt that is brined into the cheese is for flavor enhancement and does the same for the wine and fruit that is traditionally served with this cheese.
This cheese is unique and is similar to a Danish cheese that was developed in the late 1990s and is very popular in England. this cheese is paired with a white cracker so the different flavor notes built into the cheese are not masked in any way. When paired with the wine the cheese almost takes the forefront in flavor notes and becomes very robust on the palate. The cheese is a natural Rhine cheese with a Gouda base and baby Swiss culture mixture that is unique to this cheese in this region. This cheese has been developed by the cheese maker and is used in competitions to showcase what can be produced in the area.
This cheese is paired with milk chocolate and a sweet wine because the cheese shares similar characteristics as the wine and chocolate. The mild that is used to produce this cheese is from our herd of Jersey cows (thus the name) and is not altered in any way, resulting in a natural Rhine cheese that has a rich creamy texture as well as low salt content. This cheese is always good when a recipe calls for additions of fats, such as butter. This cheese works well with a burger or can be dressed up and used in a chocolate fondue.
