Love Stockinghall? Meet Tawnyhall

We took a beloved Caves cheese and gave it a sweet twist. Blockinghall, a sweet crumbly rindless version of our award-winning Stockinghall Cheddar, becomes Tawnyhall through a process of soaking the cheese in Quinta do Infantado port from Portugal. We sat down with the head of our Caves Team, Peter Jenkelunas, to get the inside scoop on this original cheese experiment–a stunning new creation that boasts a rich, toffee-like profile and a striking red-mahogany marbled pattern.

A Caves Exclusive: Tarentaise Reserve

What happens in our Murray’s Caves in Long Island City is true cheese magic. Affinage, or the cheese aging process, is a meticulous science that often produces delicious and surprising results, and the members of our Caves Team are engineers in creating brand new cheeses and remixes of old favorites. Our line of Cave Aged releases takes traditional cheeses from makers you know and love, and ages them in our state-of-the-art affinage system to bring out new flavors and textures without any additives, flavoring, or special experimentation.

The result? Releases like the new Cave Aged Tarentaise Reserve, a two-year version of Spring Brook Farm’s award-winning Tarentaise. Modeled after the French cheese Abondance, Tarentaise is beloved for being firm and slightly crunchy, with gentle notes of spice and a bright sweetness reminiscent of pineapple. We sat down with Head Cavemaster PJ to get the inside scoop on how the aging process turned this classic into a brand new selection.
