Distinctive - Fudgy - Smooth - Dense - Nutritious
Black Sheep is unique farmhouse-style cheese rarely seen in Australia, named after some of the coloured Moyarra ewes that supply the milk. Black sheep are known to have a particular character and attitude than stands them apart from the flock.
Each log is gently hand ladled from 500ml of ewes’ milk curd, and lightly salted. A melt-in-the-mouth, dense, creamy cheese with an attractive, mottled , silvery-white rind that develops after 2 weeks' maturation, as the distinctive flora grows through the layer of vine charcoal - house-made from Gippsland Wine Company (Loch) Cabernet vine pruning, and dusted lightly onto the surface. This neutralises some lactic acid which sweetens the cheese, and assists development of the wrinkly rind.
