Sinodun Hill

Sinodun Hill

The yoghurty flavour of this cheese is complemented by a delicate, almost red-fruit flavour from the wrinkly, golden coloured rind. The texture of the paste is pleasantly light, almost whipped.

Since 2016, Fraser Norton and Rachel Yarrow have been making their French-inspired goat's cheeses at the Earth Trust Farm in South Oxfordshire, a project run by an environmental charity that provides tenancies for new food businesses with a focus on sustainable land management. Sinodun Hill has a light, mousse-like, gently citric paste complemented by the slightly yeasty note provided by the rind. The rind often develops a speckling of blue and grey moulds as it ages, adding even more flavour and character.

Our Work

Sinodun Hill arrives with us when just a week or two old. We keep the cheese in one of our warmer maturation rooms, as this encourages the growth of its rind and develops its flavour.

FAQs

As a general rule of thumb, we would recommend roughly between 100 and 150 grams per person for after dinner, and a bit more if cheese is the focus of the meal. If you are buying cheese to serve over a couple of days or as part of a buffet, it is advisable to buy a few larger pieces. This will both look better and keep better than many small bits. To help visualise weights, a good tip is to consider that a regular supermarket pat of butter weighs between 200 and 250 grams. If you are at all unsure please give us a call for some advice.

The best option is to keep your cheese wrapped in its paper within a box in the fridge. This will prevent the cheese from drying out and absorbing other flavours. Your cheese will arrive wrapped in waxed cheese paper, which achieves the best possible balance between maintaining humidity around the cheese and allowing it to breathe. We are happy to provide some free extra cheese paper, just search for "cheese paper" and add it to your basket. We don't recommend cling film or foil as it can cause the cheese to sweat which will negatively affect the flavour.
