In the secluded Kaltbach caves near Lucerne, the finest Emmental cheeses mature for about one year. Resting in cool, humid air of these unique sandstone caverns the cheeses acquire dense texture flecked with salt crystals. The result is a refined, yet intense flavor; strong and fruity with a mature woody finish. The gourmet cheese also has a wonderfully complex aroma of meadows and flowers with raisins and wood fires.
Depending on your preference, we also sell the traditional Swiss Emmental that is not as strong as this gourmet cave-aged version. This AOC Emmental received a Gold Medal in the World Cheese Awards in 2010.
We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of approximately 1 pound and 8 ounces.
