Thorvald Cheese is in Neudorf Road – just a few kilometres from our vineyard. From their milking sheep, our breed of dairy sheep (the East Friesian and the Awassi) along with a careful selection of other breeds they produce a stunning selection of artisan cheese – including the rich, oozy take on traditional Camembert. We’re just trying a wedge with a glass of Neudorf Moutere Pinot Gris and a few oat crackers.

The texture changes from velvety firm and chalky when young to ripe and runny when mature with slight truffle and walnut characters They also produce a seductive yoghurt and blue vein using the rich sheeps milk.
