Our Kāpiti Pakari Aged Cheddar is carefully aged for up to 2 years, giving it a firm, brittle body and a sharp and tangy bite. In te reo Māori, Pakari speaks of maturity and strength - qualities shared this cheese. This Aged Cheddar is well-matched with a good Malborough Pinot Noir as the light fruitiness of the wine balances out the tanginess of the cheddar.
