Healey’s Cheddar outshines peers
Waterkloof Estate’s naturally matured Healey’s Cheddar excelled as the country’s finest Round Cheddar – aged anywhere from 6 to 18 months – at the prestigious 2013 South African Dairy Championships.
The highly contested South African Dairy Championships is held annually and is the country’s leading dairy contest where producers can benchmark their products and improve quality. This year Healey’s took top honours in its class and was recognised for its commitment to the highest quality standards.
Following the same traditional recipe of 150 years ago, Healey’s famous cheddar is made by hand with unpasteurised, free range Friesian milk and still matured with a muslin cloth in a natural cave like environment which encourages mould growth that enhances the flavour development over a period of time. These noble cheeses, which are clothed and greased to form a natural outer rind to harness its clean, full nutty flavour, contains no artificial colourants or preservatives.
Cheese aficionados can sample the slow matured Healey’s Cheddar (9-month, 12-month and 18-month matured) at Waterkloof Estate at R30 per person or indulge in a sensory cheese and wine tasting at R60 per person which includes six estate wines. In addition, Healey’s Cheddar takes pride on Waterkloof’s popular Ploughman’s Platter.
