Rhinette is a semi-soft cow milk cheese made in the pristine Allgäu Mountains in southeast Germany. Semi-soft in texture and mild in flavor, this is a washed rind cheese that is bathed in apple cider during the maturing process. The Renette variety of apples are sourced from the orchards in the Lake Constance region to make the cider used to brush this cheese. The flavor has a rustic and earthy element to it with a subtle aroma of apples.
