Welcome to the Mould Cheese Collective, where we celebrate the makers, growers farmers and families who just happen to make the best BLUE cheese in Australia!
Milawa “Aged Blue” (Milawa, VIC)
There is no denying we’re big fans of Milawa and we thought it remiss not to include their blue as it indeed a classic example of the style. Originally inspired by the gorgonzola dolce style of Northern Italy, these wheels are hand-selected and then aged for 6 months to really concentrate the flavours. Classic indeed!
Goldfields “Buangor Blue” (Ballarat, VIC)
When chatting to cheesemaker Nardia Baxter Keene, you can quite literally see her light up as she discusses all things blue cheese. To say it’s a passion is an understatement – at Goldfields she makes four different types of blue. This one is made to a traditional Shropshire recipe, with milk from local Jersey cows. Whilst firm, the texture is super creamy with a wonderful richness and hints of fennel and aniseed. We’re so grateful we can share this with you as this really is in limited supply (yes, we begged!).
Coal River Farm “Blue” (Tasmania)
We love pretty much everything from the Gourmet Isle of Tasmania, especially everything that Coal River does. You might remember their ‘triple cream’ winning a few hearts here at MOULD. This cheese follows on with that delicious, creamy theme, that balances the sweetness and savouriness you’d come to expect from your favourite blue.
