Wensleydale is a cheese with a rich history in the U.K, dating back to the mid 12th Century.. Once made only in Wensleydale by monks from sheep’s milk, it is now made all over England from cow’s milk as well.
Wensleydale has a milky freshness and a touch of citrus when young. As it matures, the flavors become deeper with an almost honey-like flavor in the background. When mature, it is a crumbly cheese, but it becomes firmer as it ages.
Serve with fruit and a nice crusty bread. Also pairs well with other cheeses.
