It takes 12 months for an Emmentaler AOP to become a Kaltbach Emmentaler AOP. The nutty-tangy aroma develops as the Cheese ages in the damp climate of our sandstone Cave and through the expertise of our Cavemasters. During this period the natural black-brown rind and the inclusions of white salt crystals and water droplets form. So that ultimately each wheel is a masterpiece in its own right.
Available from the wheel at the deli counter.
