by Cowgirl Creamery. Product of the USA.
Wagon Wheel is a Californian cow's milk cheese with natural rind. Aged for over 75 days.
Luxurious in its natural state, the paste becomes irresistible when melted. Wagon Wheel emerged in conversations with Zuni Cafe chef Judy Rodgers, who was hoping to find a domestic alternative to the young Italian Asiago that the cafe uses on pizzas.
The flavor has a slight tartness balanced with richer notes of brown butter and cream.
Suggested pairing: a medium-intensity white wine with restrained oak such as a California Pinot Blanc
Ingredients: organic pasteurized cow's milk, salt, cultures, rennet.
We ship perishable items in thermo-insulated cardboard boxes with reusable ice packs to insure that you food items arrive in good shape.
All cheeses we slice to order and wrap in cheese paper as we want you to enjoy original flavor of cheese - not damaged by vacuum or plastic.
All meats which require slicing we slice to order and lay it out on wax paper (deli-style) so it is easy to separate slices. Then we pack it in a plastic pouch with nitrogen purge (again, to make it easy to separate pieces we don't vacuum the meats but use commercial style food grade inert gas mix).
