FEATURES

Old World technique, contemporary appeal.
Kapiti™ Kikorangi (meaning “sky blue” in Maori) is an intense, decadent blue cheese unique to New Zealand.

This artisan-inspired cheese has won many awards, including Champion of Champions at the Cuisine NZ Champions of Cheese Awards.

The flavors of Kapiti™ Kikorangi are complex but complementary, intensifying with age. Milk from grass-fed cows lends a golden hue to the curd and translates into a rich, buttery palate with clean acid to balance the indulgent body.

The rind adds a delicious earthy quality,and the finish combines a delicious blue bite with sweet milk and nutty notes.

A rich network of blue veins rounds out the flavor profile and adds visual impact as well.
