You’ll notice a flavour that sits somewhere between a Gruyère and an Appenzeller. It’s not as sweet as an aged Gruyère thanks to its reduced maturing time, but it keeps the mature flavours that give Stärnächäs its award-winning taste.
Miss Harry from Hewitson winemakers in Australia is a great pair for this Stärnächäs cheese. As it’s a carefully-balanced red with plenty of fruits and spices, it stands up the cheese’s strength while not overpowering its award-winning flavours.
About the producer
Stärnächäs, from Swiss affineur Walo von Mühlenen and cheesemaker Marcel Gabriel, is produced at the foot of the Säntis mountain near Appenzell, Switzerland. The famous Swiss affineur’s production and ripening methods have won multiple awards and critical acclaim.
How to enjoy
Enjoy Stärnächäs with a savoury, medium-bodied red wine. Or, make the most of its award-winning fame by indulging in a sweet, single slice alone.
