Jasper Hill Farm 'Sherry Gray' Double Cream Ash Ripened Cow's Milk Cheese

Sherry Gray, is a double-cream, ash-ripened medallion made with grass-fed cows’ milk and cream.

This cheese is honors the memory of a treasured member of our community who modeled humanity and inspired our commitment to Community and to Place. Sherry loved Greensboro. He settled into an ascetic life in a sod hut on Barr Hill in the 1970’s trading the fortunes of urban living for the satisfaction of life Here. Sherry was a humble man who served us all, modeled citizenship, boosted community, and inspired generations as a substitute teacher and mentor to many.

The ash coating on this cheese serves a purpose beyond the aesthetically pleasing, stony complexion of its rind; it plays a part in tempering the fresh wheels’ surface pH and fosters the development of a thin, even bloom of flora. The extra cream and relatively long culturing time create an almost whipped texture, which coats the palate in buttery richness.

SENSORY NOTES - The result of all of this detailed ripening is a truly indulgent, one-of-a-kind cheese. Sherry Gray is, first, a feast for the eyes with its soft, silvery rind; the black ash peeking through a frosty layer of delicate bloom. Cutting into the wheel reveals a yielding, glistening paste the texture of softened butter. Flavors of cultured cream dominate, with subtle hints of fresh button mushrooms and a warm, nutty finish that lingers on the palate.

PAIRING AND SERVICE - A cheese as decadent as this just begs for bubbles. Serve with lightly toasted rosemary-olive oil crostini, or simply enjoy with a cup of herbal tea in the evening.
