King Island Dairy Black Label Range

King Island Black is the artisan range, made by hand under the tutelage of our Head Cheesemaker, Ueli Berger. It is focused on the finest King Island Dairy styles offering only five cheeses; Loorana Brie, Double Brie, Triple Cream Blue, Cloth Wrapped Cheddar and Black Wax Cheddar.

Each of these indulgent cheeses is hand-crafted using traditional cheese making techniques, a unique mix of cultures and attention to detail that influences the signature flavour for each King Island Black cheese.

Throughout the maturation process the King Island Dairy cheesemakers maintain a watchful eye, listening and responding to the varying development and characters of each wheel. It’s this personal attention and detail that sets King Island Black apart. Each cheese is checked by hand throughout its maturation, and only when the cheesemaker deems it ready that it is allowed to leave the sanctuary of their island.

The King Island Dairy Black range is only available from fine food retailers, restaurants and hotels. It is focused on the finest King Island Dairy styles offering only five cheeses; Loorana Brie, Double Brie, Triple Cream Blue, Cloth Wrapped Cheddar and Black Wax Cheddar.

 


KID Black Label Loorana Double Brie

Black Label Loorana Double Brie

Named after the site of the dairy, Loorana Brie is handcrafted in the traditional Brie de Meaux style and size, creating a soft oozing cheese with intense savoury aroma.

As with all white mould cheeses it ripens from the outside, resulting in a soft and velvety interior. It is released to market only after the carefully trained eye of the cheesemaker determines that it is the perfect texture and that the Loorana flavour will improve with age.

KID Black Label Double Brie

Black Label Double Brie

This traditional Double Brie gains its rich, creamy profile from the island's milk and the generous addition of King Island cream. Made in smaller 1kg wheels the King Island Dairy Double Brie develops an intense flavour profile and with a smooth, creamy texture. From its earthy aroma to its glossy, luscious interior this cheese packs a punch.

Black Label Double Brie was named Champion White Mould Cheese at the 2011 Australian Grand Dairy Awards.

KID Black Label Blue Triple Cream

Black Label Blue Triple Cream

A blue brie style, Blue Triple Cream can thank the addition of generous lashings of King Island cream for its rich texture.

This cheese has a dense buttery centre; on the front palate it is rich and creamy with its blue mould providing a lingering sharpness on the finish. Each cheese carefully cared for until it is perfectly blue and creamy then wrapped in a traditional straw liner to protect the structure of the cheese and its surface mould.

KID Black Label Black Wax Cheddar

Made in the spring when rich milk is in abundance, this cheddar uses a special blend of four cultures created exclusively by the cheesemaking team.

After one year of maturation the cheddar is checked, with only the finest examples set aside for another year's maturation to become King Island Dairy Black Wax Cheddar. It is a rich, savoury cheddar with a slight fruitiness and a big, sharp, full flavoured bite. It's crumbly texture is the sign of a great cheddar.
