Ford Farm’s Cave Aged Cheddars start life at the Dairy in Dorset, where they're made using milk from local herds that graze the lush pastures of the Ashley Chase Estate and its environs. These Cheddars are carried by hand two hundred feet underground into the Wookey Hole Caves in the Mendip Hills of England, where they are left to mature. The constant temperature and humidity of the Caves offers ideal conditions for storing and ageing Cheddar, and the porous nature of the cheese enables it to take on the distinctive earthy and nutty flavours from the atmosphere.
The texture is firm and the cheese is cream-coloured. The aroma is a complex mix of sweet, creamy, farmy and earthy. The flavours are big, robust and well rounded, with competing notes such as sweet and salty, or earthy and tangy. The Caves’ atmosphere bestows the Cheddar with an additional, highly-distinctive earthy and nutty flavour.
The robust, sweet and nutty nuances of Wookey Hole Cave aged Cheddar is perfectly complemented by full-bodied red wines with a strong flavour. Try a classic Claret from Bordeaux in France, or a Cabernet Sauvignon from South Africa.
