Some reviews from the judges:
Martins & Rebello Sheep's milk cheese
"This cheese has a light ivory hue and a glossy rind, profiling nicely on any cheese board. It has sweet and herbal notes, a touch of delicate acidity and a good balance. We welcome the creamy heart - "it's worth dipping inside.""
“An appealing ivory color. The texture in the center is soft and creamy and nearer the outside, more firm. The deep umami flavor lingers delightfully on the palate and the judges found it difficult to stop eating this delicious cheese.”
Martins & Rebello Goat's Milk Cheese
“This has interest with its dark chestnut coat and ivory interior. The curd has a firm texture, even a shade crumbly in places. There is a creaminess balanced by a dryness, and an overall gentle nature that is enjoyable.”
“A bold bronzed cheese with a pale creamy paste. The goat develops but it’s not overly strong, this is quite a beginners goats' milk cheese. It has some fairly delicate character, a subtle goats' milk freshness and a gentle finish.”
We are deeply grateful for your support and preference.
We will continue to do what we love most...produce and supply the finest traditional and unique cheeses.
