Named after the property from whence this cheese is made, the Tuakau dream is similar to a havarti style of cheese. With a delicate yet enjoyable flavour profile, the texture of the cheese is where this cheese really comes alive. Likened by some to peanut butter on the roof of the mouth, the creaminess exhibits a slight stickiness and makes this cheese almost universally liked. Delicious when complemented with a fruit paste or chutney, the Tuakau Dream is a beautifully delicate cheese which will disappear quickly off any cheese platter.
Made by Mercer Cheese (1 hour south of Auckland in New Zealand's North Island) by master cheese maker Albert Alferink. Mercer Cheese has been producing award winning small batch artisanal cheese from their small farm at Tuakau for over 20 years.
Ideal for pairing with a fruity paste, condiment or cured meat on baguette, oat cakes or crackers, or simply enjoyed by itself.
We recommend a wine match of a sweeter light white wine (Pinot Gris, Riesling).
