LEARN MORE ABOUT THE GOODIES:
Section 28 – Adelaide Hills, SA
“La Primavera” – Semi-hard, cow’s milk
Section 28 are inspired by the classic traditions of European cheesemakers yet their home is unapologetically Adelaide Hills. Though Section 28 nods at classic techniques they love exploring Australian flavours and drawing as much from nature as they can. As its name implies, the ‘La Primavera’ is made from the first milk of spring. This cheese is smooth, delicately nutty and covered in dried meadow flowers that accentuate the land.
Grandvewe – Birchs Bay, TAS
“Drunken Admiral” – semi-hard, sheep’s milk
When the team at grandvewe talk about their ‘girls’ you immediately know they’re referring to their darling herd of ewes. As the name implies, this cheese has had a dunk in some booze! I mean, why the hell not! After maturing for three months the Admiral is left to soak in good quality local wine, allowing the flavours mesh, creating the ultimate wine-cheese combo. This cheese is a wine-er, that’s for sure.
Yarra Valley Dairy – Yarra Valley, VIC
“Ashed Pyramid” – soft, goat’s milk
So what is an Ashed Pyramid? Don’t think too hard, it is exactly as the name implies. This stunningly moulded pyramid is coated in graded ash that doesn’t impart flavour, instead adds a light effervescence to the texture of the cheese. It has all those wonderful goat’s milk characteristics, it’s light, smooth with a fresh tangy finish. Yarra Valey Dairy is a must-see when in the area, the historical building where cheese is made is the original building used by early settlers to supply the area with butter and milk.
Coal River Farm – Coal River, TAS
White Chocolate with Dried Raspberries
Decadent handmade white chocolate sprinkled with dried rasberries picked straight from the farm. Everything at Coal River Farm is small batch and handmade, from their chocolates to cheese from jams and seasonal spreads. Nothing says I love you quite like hand-made chocolate.
Full Glasses Candle, NSW
Pinot and Chardonnay 100% soy wax candle
Hand-poured by sommelier Samantha Payne, these candles are infused with grape skins and other seasonal wine aromas. Using her years of experience and expert somm nose, Sam has isolated distinct wine scents and encapsulated them in her candles. Pretty neat hey!
What’s a platter without some crackers! Our light wafer crackers are the perfect vessel for large chunks of cheese.
