St Duke's Red - HaVe Cheese

After a long hiatus brought on by the death of G+ and the demise of our cheese subscription service, we're back.

This time we've got St Duke's Red, a Epoisses de Bourgogne styled washed rind cheese from the notable W.A. manufacturer HaVe, based in Wokalup, near Harvey.



Not as potent to the nose as the French offering, St Duke's Red is definitely bold in its aroma, and you certainly know when it has been in the room. Because of that, it is relatively friendly as an introduction to the 'stinky' family, and the rich earthy flavours are rewarding.


We found it enjoyable with fruit, onion chutney, and a light salad. It would certainly go well on a more sophisticated cheese board, and a strong fruit paste, such as plum, would also be an excellent complement.


HaVe cheeses are available through selected outlets in W.A.'s South-West: https://www.harveycheese.com.au/retail-outlets.html
and check with the particular retailer as to their specific range.

  1. This is the mildest washed rind cheese I've encountered, and the light but very full flavoured taste is accompanied well by the exquisite mouth feel. So good!
