Printable Cheese Note

Berrys Creek Riverine Blue has a rich, dense, buttery texture, with salty blue, minerally veins and a complex savoury flavour. After maturation in a small room next to the dairy for a minimum of two months, the smooth paste becomes interspersed with blueveins and develops a slightly flakey texture, with complex savoury flavours and a distinctly sweet finish. It is a relatively mild blue which should appeal to blue connoisseurs and new-comers alike.

A little history about Berrys Creek

This buffalo milk blue is the first of its kind in Australia and one of only a few made in the world. Cheesemaker Barry Charlton collects fresh milk from the Sunrise Plains Farm, near Sale in Gippsland, which milks a modest herd of just forty-one Riverine water buffalo. Berrys Creek Gourmet Cheese was set up by Barry and his partner Cheryl Hulls in 2007. They specialise in making blue cheeses and are the only Australian producer to have made blue cheese from the milk of cows, sheep, goats and buffalo. Berrys Creek Riverine Blue has won many Champion Awards at Australian cheese competitions.

Welcomed cheese gift

I included this delicious cheese in a group of items for a gift hamper - my parents celebrated thei Diamond Wedding Anniversary on 7/10/21.
I sent them some meals and farm fresh eggs and terrine from Harper & Blohms as well and all goodies were well received. What else to you get for a couple who have been together for so long? Delicious food wins.

Sounds like you're a diamond of a daughter, Fiona. Cheese is the perfect gift for any occasion we reckon. Thanks for taking time to write a review.


Delicious smooth and creamy goodness!! Tastefully chosen! Cheese at the top of its game! Beautiful all round!!

'Tastefully chosen' - we see what you did there! Looks like the award-winning Riverine Blue just found another fan. Thanks for your review, Jumol.
