Herrgård-cheese has a mild, sweet, nutty, tangy flavour and characteristic small round holes. It is very similar to Gruyere or Cheddar cheese but with a distinctly softer texture. It is good table cheese ideal for snacking, melting and crumbling. It is served as a starter with crusty bread or crackers. Enjoy it by melting it on sandwiches or into a salad. Merlot wine is recommended with Herrgårdsost to bring out the best from each other.
