Not dissimilar to a French Tomme De Savoie, Stoney Cross is mould-ripened and has a smooth texture with a creamy, buttery texture. Sweet and subtle flavours, with a distinctly earthy finish, the name Stoney Cross comes from an old World War II airfield, some 2 miles to the South of of the Lyburn creamery.
A smooth, soft washed-rind cheese; flavours range from milky and buttery at the paste, to vegetal with a cocoa-like bitterness at the rind. The aftertaste is sweet and reminiscent of caramel, even chocolate.
Made with pasteurised cow’s milk and animal rennet.
With a very distinctive ammonite shaped round appearance, and covered in an attractive natural mould-ripened rustic rind, the deep yellow moist interior is spread with dark blue-green veins. It has a rich blue taste, smooth buttery texture with a melt-in-the-mouth flavour without the harshness associated with some blue cheeses.
