Caves of Faribault re-introduce its St. Mary's Grass Fed Gouda, a Wisconsin gouda hand-crafted by Master Cheesemaker Bruce Workman of Edelweiss Creamery. Made in Wisconsin, this gouda is then aged in historic sandstone caves by the affineurs of Caves of Faribault. The cheese responds beautifully to cave-aging, developing a smooth buttery sharpness with a hint of caramel. Wheels of this 2009 vintage have a natural, rustic rind different from the wax rind of the previous 2007 classic. This aromatic rind will continue to mature within the wrapping. The rind is edible and suited best for those who prefer a stronger flavor profile.
