Instagram post 18102857182205793 Our #Primavera is almost ready....😉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This cheese pays homage to the moment that spring emerges in the Adelaide Hills and it is due for release next week.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We take the first raw milk of spring and use classic alpine techniques to create a uniquely Australian cheese. Then, to remind you of the timing of the cheese production, we press dried meadow flowers into the cheese surface just before release. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The floral aromas beautifully balance the slightly pungent, reddish rind underneath. The smooth, supple paste has a rich	buttery flavour enhanced by a delicate nuttiness and subtle hints of grass.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💐🧀🍃⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Instagram post 17869283753302980 @parallaxdesign showing us how cheese and wine pairing is done 👍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#repost⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today we are celebrating #CheeseLoversDay because if there is something we love almost as much as wine… it's cheese! So how can you best pair them?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are a number of approaches to cheese + wine pairing, one method we like is to pair harder cheese with lighter wines and softer cheese with bolder wines. And think about who is going to be the star of the pairing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For a bold in-your-face wine, consider an understated cheese, and vice versa. The idea is to compliment the more prominent of the pair. To create a perfect pairing you’ll need to know the flavour profile of the wine, then match it with the flavour profile of the cheese. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This will take some trial and error… so it's lucky that we love research! It's also about finding what YOU like, rather than getting caught up with what is RIGHT or WRONG.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are taking this approach and trying some different cheese with some of our favourite wines:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
@delamerevineyards Blanc de Blancs with:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
@s28cheeses Mont Priscilla; this hard cow's milk cheese is made in the #AdelaideHills by a local producer, and has a vegetable ash through the centre giving it a distinctive flavour.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
@gemtreewines Marsanne with:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Beston Cloth Bound Cheddar; made in Murray Bridge, this cheddar is rich and full flavour and favourite amongst locals.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Landana Aged Organic Gouda; from Holland, this 100% free range cow’s milk mild gouda is traditionally crafted and aged in the Dutch tradition.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
@lambrook_wines Pinot Noir with:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Vacherousse d’Argental; this brie style cow's milk white rind cheese from the Lyon region of France, is very smooth and creamy. It has the texture of thick clotted cream, and is fresh, lively and full of flavour. It literally melts in your mouth (and on the plate if left to sit!)

Instagram post 18173563573074538 #rindporn - the rind development on our #MonteRosso half way through its affinage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When living in Piemonte, the Italian Taleggio was regularly purchased at the local village market and is a core part of many local dishes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Section28 worked for more than 18 months to develop a cheese that reflected that experience, and the result is our Monte Rosso.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It has a more traditional flavour and texture than some modern Taleggios and is made with an old Taleggio recipe and heritage cultures sourced from Italy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The cheese is washed two to three times per week for a month with a brevi-linen that is designed to create a light orange rind, encourage some mould growth and promote the ripening process. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a result, the #MonteRosso has a sweet, buttery paste that has hints of fruit and a lingering lactic finish. Its velvety paste is balanced by a thin aromatic, orange rind that has hints of smoked ham but does not overpower the experience.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Why Section28?

Why Section28?
Section28 Homestead

 

Currently, alongside “why Alpine cheeses” , this is the most commonly asked question of our small enterprise. Whilst certainly a valid question, it is usually followed with a guess along the lines of: “is it a reference to some piece of legislation?”.

Nothing nearly so clever, I am afraid. Rather, the name Section28 is a nod to our original family farm.

A Section is a historical legacy in South Australia, left by the surveying structure used in founding the colony. Under the founding scheme, land was divided up and sold to pay for the passage of selected settlers. The simplest method for the systematic survey of new areas was found to be dividing the land into Counties, then Hundreds (usually 100 square miles) and then into sections.

Thus, Section 28 in the Hundred of Roberts is 1,800 acres in the middle of South Australia’s ‘wheat and sheep’ country. There are not many dairies in the area and, with less than 400mm of annual rainfall and an altitude in the tens of metres rather than the 1,000s of metres, it is a long way removed from the Alpine pastures of Eastern France.

However, while growing up, we ran a few house cows (all named, as was the fashion, after a garden flower – Daisy, Dandelion, Rose…) for milk, cream and butter. And it was on the farm where, in what seems like an eternity ago, the seeds for this adventure were sown.

 

What other questions do you have?

An Invitation to Make Art

An Invitation to Make Art

 

“If we want to make meaning, we need to make art”  – Brené Brown.

Eleven words that caused a pause in an otherwise busy day. The surprise was that this pause then formed the kernel of a thought that, in turn, developed into an idea, which has now grown into Section28 Farmstead Cheeses.

Making art in the form of Artisan Cheese is possibly not the result that you might expect from a moment of reflection, but this has been our inspiration to step out of our comfortable existence and try something new.

We are passionate about creating products of the highest possible quality. We are inspired by true Master Craftsmen – people that spend a lifetime perfecting their art, referencing time-honoured traditions but making their own improvements, and measuring their success in the joy on a customer’s face.

And so, we are setting out to emulate this tradition. Section28 Artisan Cheeses will produce hand-made Alpine Cheeses that capture the very essence of the Adelaide Hills. We are captivated by the mixture of science and technical skill, combined with pure artistry that has been the source of the world’s great cheeses. Our aim is to create unique Australian cheeses that reference their European heritage and cheesemaking traditions but have a style and flavour which is distinctly their own.

Over the past 18 months we have worked to put the foundations for this venture in place, and today we begin the process of building the business. Over the next few months we will build and equip the production facility, test our production processes, develop our signature cheeses, launch our brand and begin selling. It all seems quite simple when captured in a brief sentence, but marginally daunting if thought about for too long!

Wiser people than us have said that the joy is in the journey rather than the destination. With this in mind, we would like to invite you to join us as we embark upon this journey to make art. We promise it will be exhilarating.

About

About

“I trust a good deal to common fame, as we all must. If a man has good corn, or wood, or boards,
or pigs to sell, or can make better chairs or knives, crucibles or church organs than anybody else,
you will find a broad hard-beaten road to his house, though it be in the woods.”

An extract from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s journal, 1855

Section28 Artisan Cheeses is a small business dedicated to achieving absolute excellence in our raw materials,
in our production and in all of our cheese. Inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson, we aim to become known as a leading Australian artisan
producer of hard and semi-hard Alpine cheeses that quintessentially capture the essence of our local environment.

Our passion is hand-making uniquely Australian cheeses using the classic traditions of European cheesemakers and
the very best milk from the Adelaide Hills. We are inspired by the relentless search for perfection of the Master Cheesemaker,
the artistry required to hand-craft a great product and the history that is embedded in each cheese that is made.

We are excited to be on this adventure and welcome you to join us.
