Bon Accord Peaks Artisan Cheesemakers 120g

CHARACTERISTICS

Bon Accord is a thinly rinded cow’s milk white mould made with organic Normande milk and a geotrychum rind – the one that resembles the contours of a brain, with wavy troughs and peaks. It has a distinct flavour of root vegetables with a fudge like texture in the centre, softly at oozing closer to the rind. Pairs superbly with crisp, fresh fruit, such as locally grown apples. A dry white such as a Pinot Gris will highlight the earthiness of the cheese along with its sublime textures.

A little history

The Peaks Artisan Cheesemakers are Luke Armstrong and Vanessa Lipscombe, who are both are passionate about food and established their micro dairy in 2018. Together they make and mature The Peaks Artisan Cheesemakers range of cheeses in the Victorian Alpine region – traditional dairy country amongst the most sustainable in Australia due to its high rainfall and quality soils. Their goal is simple: To make beautiful cheese from the highest quality local milk. Both the cows and goats are sourced from single herds in the Kiewa Valley region as single source milk means minimal processing and maximum freshness, attributes which are fundamental to producing quality cheese. All the cheeses are manufactured by hand using traditional methods, and then matured in their cellars. Like all fermented foods, cheese is a living thing and, as such, the focus is on providing environments where specific microbes can create desirable flavours and textures. Prior to the construction of the Great Alpine Road, the Bon Accord Spur was the route taken by walkers, horse riders and pack horses to Mt Hotham. Once also the name of a long burnt out hut, the remains of which lie about 9.5km from the start of the track, the Bon Accord Spur is today used by walkers to reach Mt Hotham or to join up with other popular tracks such as the Razorback and Bungalow Spur.
