by Fritzenhaus Dairy, Gourmino. Wasen, Switzerland.
Hornbacher is made from raw cow’s milk, this Swiss stunner is pungent and grassy, with melt-in-your-mouth notes of butter and caramelized onions.
Hailing from Wasen, Switzerland, it’s a firm and snackable Alpine that tastes just like a loaded baked potato fresh from the oven. Offering hints of mushrooms, mineral notes and browned butter. Imagine, if you will, aromas and flavors such as roasted hazelnuts and caramelized onions. The cheesemaker describes the flavor as 'buttered baked potatoes.' This firm cheese is a bit crumbly, with ever-present flavor crystals, and stands out for its intense savory, umami flavors and creamy mouthfeel.
It will pair nicely with fortified dessert wines like sherry and port, or a big malty beer or Cabernet Sauvignon.
