Cow's Milk Cheese
Tarentaise is an American cheese produced by Spring Brook Farm and Thistle Hill Farm in Vermont. The cheese is made from organic cow's milk of Jersey cows and it ages for 6 months. Underneath its washed rind, the texture of the paste is hard, firm, and smooth. The aromas are nutty and earthy, while the flavors are creamy, buttery, and nutty, with a hint of spiciness on the finish. Due to the fact that Tarentaise contains over 45% of butterfat, it's often melted or used as a table cheese. It's recommended to pair it with Riesling, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
