|thermized COW’S MILK
|Alex has alight and delicate body and a deep cream blast cut through with ripe melon notes that lend a perfectly balanced acidity.
One of the first cheeses produced by Albert Kraus, Alex is named for the German rail line that connects the Alpine region of the Allgäu where the cheese is produced, to the more urban area surrounding Munich. Albert exclusively uses milk from his family’s herd of Brown Swiss cows, managed by his brother Xaver, to produce this unique classic.
Aged for a total of seven months, Albert begins to wash each wheel with a special blend of hand-picked herbs and an Elder Flower cordial for the final two months. The wash adds a fruity acidity, with notes of melon, that help to cut through the deep cream flavors of Alex. Its body is surprisingly light for a cheese of this style, helping to make Alex extremely snackable. In the crowded Alpine category, Alex is a refreshingly different, original creation.
Albert Kraus and his team have been producing cheese from the best Allgäu milk since March 1999 at the Hofkäserei Kraus cheese dairy in Ebersbach near Obergünzburg. This milk comes from two traditional Allgäu farms that are only five Kilometers away from the cheese dairy.
