Vintage cheddar cheese: CHOICE testing reveals which brands are “grate”

August 5, 2021 Food & Beverage No Comments

New testing from CHOICE has revealed which vintage cheddar cheeses are worth paying a premium for.

CHOICE’s panel of expert judges have done the hard yards and taste tested 27 vintage cheddar cheeses available at supermarkets across Australia.

“Judges assessed each cheese on its flavour, aroma, texture and appearance. They looked for a cheese with a sweet, milky flavour, a good balance of salt and acid, a texture that’s firm, close and slightly crumbly, and a lingering aftertaste,” says CHOICE senior food journalist, Rachel Clemons.

“King Island Dairy Surprise Bay Cheddar scored first place with a rating of 73%,” says Clemons.

“The Surprise Bay Cheddar impressed our judges with its mildly sweet cheddar aroma, balanced flavour, and good, firm texture,” says Clemons.

Coles Australian Vintage Cheddar also scored a place in the top six.

“The Coles Australian Vintage Cheddar did very well in our taste testing, receiving a score of 70%. It’s also cheaper than a lot of the other cheeses we tested, at $1.60 per 100g,” says Clemons.
