Red Fox – March Cheese of the Month

red fox 003As the old saying goes, March “comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.”  But this month, we’re all about the fox here in the Vineyard Market–Belton Farm’s Red Fox!  This month our featured cheese is a Red Leicester-style cheese from England.  Red Fox is aged for about 15 months, giving it a smooth yet crumbly texture with a delightful crunch provided by calcium lactate crystals packed within–the same crunch found in aged Gouda!  It has a complex combination of sweet, savory, and nutty flavors with a clean aftertaste.  Bright russet in color (a result of adding annatto to the milk), Red Fox adds a beautiful pop of color to your cheese board or provides a delicious alternative when melted on a burger!

Check with your local Bottle King Vineyard Market for availability.
