Marieke® Gouda Aged 9-12: Nutty and slightly crystalized with deep, nuanced flavors. Pair with dark chocolate and honey, Merlot or Stout beer.
Expert, licensed, cheesemaker, Marieke Penterman, and her team, handcraft traditional Dutch Goudas using the time-tested, Old World, cheesemaking methods Marieke brought with her when she emigrated from the Netherlands. Marieke transforms farmstead-fresh, raw, cow’s milk from her family farm into award-winning cheese, which is then carefully cured on imported Dutch pine planks in temperature and humidity-controlled aging cellars.
