Stone and Crow Nightwalker 180g
Nightwalker is a small washed rind cheese with a soft texture that becomes gooey with age. The flavour is typical of washed rind cheeses, with meaty notes and a creamy finish. To create its tell-tale pungency, the cheesemaker washes the cheese in brine every day for the first couple of weeks, until the cheese is ready to wrap for sale. Typical of this style, the flavours have savoury & meaty notes with a creamy finish.
A little history about Nightwalker
Cheesemaker Jack Holman is better known for his role at the Yarra Valley Cheese Company, where he oversees production of some of the most popular artisan cheeses in Australia. Stone & Crow is Jack’s personal side project, where he gets to dabble in new styles and unleash his cheesemaker creativity on a smaller scale. Each season, Jack gets together with some special mates and they head out into the bush for a night walk. On one night walk, Jack pulled out a new cheese he had been working on, and his mates loved it. The cheese was named Nightwalker, and it now makes an appearance on every night walk. Jack says it’s a great cheese to share with your mates.
