    Sheldrake Moon, named for the reflection of the moon on the waters of Cayuga Lake at Sheldrake Point, is a bloomy- rind cheese, similar to Brie in style, made from whole cow milk. As the cheese ages, the paste breaks down into a lovely cream line that gives the cheese a lusciously rich texture.

    Lively Run Sheldrake Moon pairs excellently with dry Riesling and Champagne- style dry Ciders.
