Flavors are tart, with a soft, almost spreadable texture. Unapologetic, goats’ cheese is intense in its youth, providing earthy and tangy nuances that sharply sweep the palate. Letting it linger means allowing the flavors to settle and clean up, providing plenty of opportunity for other pairings to stand out. As it ages, the body grows firm without hardening. The consistency instead becomes crumbly, while flavors turn creamy with hints of hazelnut and dried herbs gradually signaling their presence. Low in fat, it clocks in as a lighter alternative to most heavier cheeses. Its unmistakable bitterness enlivens surrounding flavors, while also offering a rich savor.
We have two varieties, one with red wine and the other with paprika.
