Coppermine is like a temperamental child and it can be different from one batch to the next. It is named after Coppermine Creek in the Ruahine Ranges for the coppery tones on the surface of the cheese. It is a washed-rind style cheese, which is literally "washed" during its development to encourage the bloom of a copper coloured culture. Gorgeous complex flavours develop as it ripens and it has a silky smooth texture. Like Marama it is a top notch table cheese that can easily be the centre piece of a meal or a snack but watch out - it can get so creamy it simply needs to be spread on a cracker to deliver it too your mouth.
