Aries - Aged Alpine Style Cheese

Aries, the aged Alpine-style cheese from Shooting Star Creamery, embraces the philosophy of slow maturation. Like a fine wine, this cheese gets better with time, evolving into a sensory masterpiece that captivates the palate. Each wheel of Aries represents a commitment to the art of aging, resulting in a cheese that transcends the ordinary.

A sheep’s milk cheese, each wheel is aged for eight months. By the time the maturation process is finished, the paste within has developed a profile reminiscent of buttermilk with a subtle fruitiness and a sweet finish that hints of pineapple. Firm yet wonderfully creamy, its aromatic complexity makes it easy to see why this sheep’s milk cheese is an award winner.

Drawing inspiration from Alpine cheese-making traditions, Aries encapsulates the rugged charm and robust flavors that define cheeses from this famous mountain range. As Aries matures, it undergoes a transformative journey, developing a rich, nutty flavor profile. The aging process imparts depth, creating a cheese that balances the bold with the subtle, making it a versatile companion for culinary creations.

A versatile choice, we especially love to serve Aries shaved into a salad or alongside an appetizer tray of fresh fruit and honeycomb. For a simple yet effective cheese course, serve Aries with a dry Rose, Chenin Blanc, or a fruity IPA.
