2 Year Aged Cheddar

Grafton’s flagship cheddar is made with unpasteurized/raw cow’s milk and aged for two full years to achieve a mature flavor and dense, firm-yet-creamy texture. Young cheddar is tasted early on to determine the best trajectory for aging; for 2 Year Aged Cheddar we look for balanced acidity and moisture that will hold up over time.

This cheese bears the classical profile for New England cheddar: buttery notes with a bold, sharp tang and a long, nutty finish. The aroma is lactic and bright, with flavors of sweet cream, freshly mown hay, and tangy, cultured milk. Moderate acidity carries throughout.

Two Year Aged Cheddar has enough zip to stand up to some stronger pairings. Try with garlicky pickles, salami, or your favorite chutney. For a classic pairing, serve with sliced fresh apples, or grate over a bowl of chili or warm apple pie for a true New England treat. This cheese melts with an even body and full flavor.
