Old Winchester is now 18 months and an older version of Winchester, on a previous page. This is now a much dryer harder and crystalline cheese, becoming more reminiscent of an old gouda with a distinctive nuttiness in flavour, however it is a product of evolution and need. Because Old Winchester is made with a vegetarian rennet, on a number of occasions the cheese is being sold, and used as a vegetarian replacement for a hard, Italian cheese, and yet can still be used as a table cheese.
Stoney Cross is our youngest offering from Lyburn Farmhouse Cheesemakers. Mould-ripened, not dissimilar to a French Tomme De Savoie. At 8 weeks old it is creamy, buttery in texture, sweet flavours, with a distinctly earthy finish. Stoney Cross is the next most popular cheese after Old Winchester, and is for those that want a milder cheese.
