Aged Appenzeller Cheese


Secrecy surrounds the recipe, particular the herbal wine or cider washes that give the cheese it characteristic fruity flavor. The 'extra' guarantees the cheese is matured for a minimum of six months and this extra age brings with it extra fruity, spicy, complex flavours this Appenzeller is so famous for.

More about Aged Appenzeller ... its said that in times past, Appenzeller was a form of currency during the time of Charlemagne rule, Appenzeller is still to this day, one of Switzerland's most popular cheeses. Traditionally the wheels are released at three different aging stages: Classic - aged 3 to 4 months, Surchoix - aged 4 to 6 months and ultimately Extra - aged for at least 6 months and adorned with a black label. Here at The Cheese and Wine Shop we offer the Classic Appenzeller and Black Label Appenzeller. 

During the aging process, wheels are rubbed with a brine that is often seasoned with wine, spices and often time honored secret ingredients, specific to each maker. These added flavors enhance the nuanced characteristics of the Appenzeller with notes ranging from nuttiness to hints of piquant spice.

Appenzeller, and milk comes exclusively from the Simmenthaler breed of cow. Traditionally cheeses were only made using raw milk, however, the rules have become less stringent and now some dairies prefer to pasteurize.

As with many Swiss mountain cheeses, once the curd is formed and cut, it is then reheated to a higher temperature to expel more whey from the solids, forming smaller pieces of curd in the process. The curd is then pressed while still in the vat, submerged under the whey before being transferred to moulds for further pressing. After unmoulding, wheels are moved to the maturing rooms where they are aged.
