“Matahari” Sake Washed Cheese: Named to match its color, this cheese is crafted with techniques first mastered by Trappist monks. Produced in various locations around the world, Trappist cheeses characteristically have a pungent rind aroma, yet a mild interior. Our version of Trappist soft cheese is made from whole cow milk and cream, giving it a buttery spreadable consistency like that of Port-Salut. Over weeks of careful aging, our “Matahari” cheese is painstakingly washed time and again with Sake to provide a favorable environment for the development of its orange colored rind and unique flavor. Please note that the Sake ferments into vinegar on the rind, so there is no residual alcohol content in this product.
Similar to the legendary Époisses de Bourgogne, Matahari is a very strong cheese!
