Cricket Creek Maggie's Round
$8.99 - 1/4 lb.
Maggie�s Round is a semi-firm, raw milk cheese inspired by the tomas of the Italian Alps. The flavor is gently sharp, sweet, bright and fruity, with notes of citrus � especially lemon curd. The rustic natural rind adds earthiness. Aged for 4-9 months. With notes of lemon curd and pineapple upside-down cake, Maggie's Round is the cheese version of a sweet and tangy dessert. While it is inspired by the Italian toma that comes out of the Alps, this is an entirely different creation. The first impression is a striking rind - rustically textured and the color of dry hay. Cut into this wheel, and discover a buttery sweet paste within. After at least four months of aging, this raw, grass fed cow's milk allows a tropic, citrusy fruit aroma to waft through the air, begging for a sultry sweet white wine to be enjoyed alongside it, or a bright and vibrant American Saison.
