Full Shipping Details
This exciting new Vermont cheddar is the work of American artisans reviving the English tradition of bandage-wrapping. Aged in cheese caves for up to 12 months, Grafton's Clothbound Cave Aged Cheddar is made with premium Vermont cow milk for maximum flavor and richness. The unique bandage-wrapped rind allows the cheese to breath and slowly release moisture to concentrate its flavor. It is a traditional English-style cheddar with a dry, flakey texture and curd set with animal rennet. This Clothbound Cave Aged Cheddar has a beautiful natural rind presentation that has earthy notes with sweet undertones.

Aging is divided between two of America's premier caves, one in Minnesota and the other in Grafton's home of Vermont. Some wheels are aged in the cool sandstone caves of Fairbault Dairy, home of America's first Blue cheese, St. Pete's Select Amablu. Other wheels are sent to Vermont's own cheese affinage cooperative, the Cellars at Jasper Hill. Through this careful aging process, Grafton cheddar balances the intense flavor of raw milk and sharp snap of a well-made cheddar with the smooth finish of a carefully aged cheese.
