Montagnolo Affine is a surface-ripened, triple cream cheese made by Käserei Champignon in Germany. Aged at a low temperature using a cold-maturation process, it slowly develops an aromatic, consistent and spicy flavour. This creamy cheese with blue veins has a distinctive, sweet aroma.
In 2013 this cheese was crowned "Supreme Champion" at the World Cheese Awards. It was the first time a German cheese had taken the top prize in the 25 year history of the awards, which are run by the UK’s Guild of Fine Food and are the biggest international competition of their kind.
2017 World Cheese Awards: Super Gold
2013 World Cheese Awards: Supreme Champion
