Beneath the bright orange wax lies a mature creamy cheddar speckled with fresh horseradish and parsley.It's very tangy and zesty with a nice edge of heat that really tingles on your tongue.
Harlech takes it name from the Welsh warriors of the Middle ages and is one of the deliciously different flavored cheeses coming out of Wales. It's an intriguing mouthful with a wonderful mellow cheddary smoothness.
Pairing notes: Harlech certainly needs a strong red partner like a Rioja or Chianti. The horseradish in Harlech makes it the perfect partner for beef. Try it melted on a steak or in a cold roast beef sandwich with good fresh white bread.
