What a wonderful cheese - Reypenaer V.S.O.P. is one of the hidden Dutch treasures - very hard to find in the Netherlands; most Dutch don't even know about the cheese, but in our opinion it is the best Gouda the Dutch ever made.
This delicious gourmet cheese is matured for about 2 years and during that maturation sheds approximately 25% of its original weight. The cheese will show white spots on the surface - an indication of mineral and protein crystallization. - something that happens to all goudas when they age. Despite its relatively young age, the cheese is not overly dry, but has a remarkable mature flavor that is sharp without being overly salty - it is a masterpiece.
For your order, we cut and wrap Reypenaer V.S.O.P. in wedges of approximately 1 pound and 8 ounces.
