True to style, Alpha curds are cooked and pressed to achieve a tight, elastic texture and robust, complex flavors. Young wheels are washed with a cultured brine to cultivate a natural rind that lends an authentic, funky depth of character. Mature wheels are bold and meaty with amplified butter and caramelized onion flavors carried by a rich and crystalline texture.
The texture, aesthetic, and flavor make Alpha Tolman an ideal choice for fans of Appenzeller (or fondue!). Try pairing with a robust ale, plummy red wine, or onion jam. For a satisfying and novel meal, follow the lead of Swiss/French raclette — melt onto a plate of fingerling potatoes, cured meat and natural sour pickles. (from Cellars at Jasper Hill)
