About this item

Wilde Weide is Dutch Boerenkaas (Farmhouse) Gouda produced by Jan and Roos van Schie on their small farm on a lake island known as Zwanburgerpolder in South Holland. Wilde Weide means "wild meadow" in Dutch. It is made year round but the taste and appearance may vary according to the season it is made in. The affinage time is 15 months.

This hard-pressed, uncooked, raw cow's milk cheese has a straw yellow paste with small well-shaped eyes and speckles of amino acid crystals. It has a characteristic texture on the palate, crumbling into fine flakes before melting completely. Wilde Weide flavour profile is creamy and mildly sharp with notes of sweet bourbon and/or whiskey. This is contrasted by the wonderful aroma of hazelnut, butter, whey and bourbon.

Accompany the cheese with red Syrahs and mid fruity Gewurtzaminer and Riesling whites.
