Our Extra Mature Bandage Wrapped Cheddar is our most popular and highly awarded cheese, the reason for Mariano Gonzalez's fame within the industry. This cheese is made in traditional 60 pounds wheels, bound in cheesecloth to protect the cheese during aging, and hand-turned daily for the first two months.
Fiscalini Bandaged Wrapped Cheddar has been distinguished as the World's Best Cheddar at the World Cheese Awards in London three times, and remains the only American Cheddar to win the award.
Aged 14 months this cheese is firm, crumbly, straw-colored and has a nutty, slightly smoky, earthy and more round finish than most aged cheddars.
Vacuum-sealed package may be stored for up to one year.
Once opened, tightly wrap the remaining cheese and store in an airtight bag up to 30 days.
