This cheese gets its name from its appearance as it is brushed with pine bark. Mild and creamy with a fine pine flavour and a tangy aroma. Each individual cheese receives daily attention, as it is brushed with a briny mix. This helps it to form a surface coating, which speeds up the ripening process. In addition, each cheese is brushed with pine bark, which gives it its distinctive aroma.
