Enjoy with blackberries, pineapple and honey. Shave or salads with lemon vinaigrette and pomegranate seeds, grate on polenta. All fabulous, but we just loved to simply snack on this stunning cheese. Pairs nicely with a tart Gose, Berliner Weisse beer, Riesling and even iced green tea
Swiss cheese makers and affineurs carefully handpick a select number of wheels to continue their refinement in the Kaltbach Caves in the Alpine Valley. The caves are a 22 million year old natural sandstone labyrinth with a small tranquil river that runs through it which also inspired the name. Kaltbach means "cold river," and it’s what allows for a constant humidity of 96 percent in the cool, mineral-rich cave air. The enormous amount of cave-wall surface area help regulate the aging atmosphere and promote a stable setting for the cheese to ripen. The porous nature of the sandstone acts as a give and take. It gives moisture when needed and absorbs when there is too much. This natural process regulates the humidity which is a crucial part of texture and flavor development and what makes this cheese unlike any other in the world.
