Klein River Colby

Klein River

A Cheddar-style cheese and one of two cheeses made in a 4 kg loaf-shape and only spending one day in the brine bath. Colby defines ‘allpurpose’ and can be grated, wedged, melted, eaten on its own and slices wonderfully!

Creamy once you get through the slightly young texture. The fermentation uses mesophilic, thermophilic and gas-forming cultures to achieve this unique open texture. Colby is a popular, playful cheese for children and those who prefer a mild flavour. It is enjoyed in many restaurants and delis throughout the Cape due to its versatility, ease of use and tangy flavour.

Go ahead and have a taste…Surprisingly good and flavourful for a one month-er… don’t you think?
