Tasty, Nutty, robust!
Old Winchester is a great cheese, matured for 18 months or more, it's an amazingly tasty, slightly nutty very hard cheese. Being vegetarian, it's quite a good substitute for parmesan when a vegetarian option is needed. Old Winchester is a washed curd cheese and brine washed after pressing. Reminiscent of a Gouda when young, the aging process creates amino acid crystals giving the cheese a slightly crunchy texture, it is very highly rated around here. We tried it as a cheese of the week and it was one of the few that became a constant feature in our counters in all 3 shops.
Made by the Lyburn Farmhouse Cheesemakers, part of a family farming enterprise in Hampshire.
We very often use this cheese when we do a charity cheese and wine night, it's amazing with a robust fruity red or a great Herefordshire Cider!
