With a name like Chardonnay, you know this is going to be good! Similar to a baby Camembert, Moser Chardonnay is made from organic milk, and then washed overnight in organic French Chardonnay wine. The wine helps the cheese develop a thin, felt-like rind of white mold, which can be eaten along with the center paste of the cheese. You’ll find it rich and creamy, with a slight sharpness in the finish.
The maker, Ueli Moser, was inspired to create Moser Chardonnay by his love for soft French cheeses.
