About this item
Jasper Hill's newest cheese, Sherry Gray, is a double-cream, ash-ripened medallion made with grass-fed cows’ milk and additional cream from Monument Farms in the Champlain Valley.
The ash coating on this cheese serves a purpose beyond the aesthetically pleasing, stony complexion of its rind; it plays a part in tempering the fresh wheels’ surface pH and fosters the development of a thin, even bloom of flora. The extra cream and relatively long culturing time creates an almost whipped texture, which coats the palate in buttery richness. Flavors of cultured cream dominate, with subtle hints of fresh button mushrooms and a warm, nutty finish that lingers on the palate.
