flannel flower cheese

Flannel Flower

Our artisan soft bloomy cheese in the style of a French soft cheese like those from Brie, but with its own Australian identity, named after Australia’s iconic soft-petalled wildflower. Creamy dense paste becomes softer and oozier as it ripens from the outside in, with mild nutty tones developing into more oniony/cauliflower flavours as it ages and softens.

Made in 1kg wheels in the style of a traditional French artisan Brie, with a soft dense paste and a thin rind, it ripens from the outside in, its mild chalky interior becoming softer, creamier and more pungent as it ages:

Aspect: white/cream colour, bloomy rind is slightly wavy, becoming flecked with brown as it ripens.

Texture: dense and semi-soft with slightly chalky core when young, becoming creamy and melty, slightly oozy but not liquid, as it ripens.

Flavour: mild, creamy/lactic and slightly nutty when young, becoming more full-flavoured, cabbagy and yeasty as it ripens.

Weight: whole wheel is 1kg, also sold in wedges.

Eat: perfect for warmer months, delicious as part of a cheeseboard, spread on crusty bread or crackers, or in a composed salad.

Presentation: wrapped in micro-perforated lactic cheese paper, sold as a whole cheese or in cut wedges.

Pair: Sparkling wines pair well with Brie-style cheeses, their acidity helping to cut though the rich, nutty mushroomy flavour. For the same reason, cool climate Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Albarino & Pinot Grigio work a treat. Or a very light fruity Beaujoulais, un-oaked Pinot or similar, if you really must drink red!
