- Calculated at Checkout
Semi-soft goat cheese bathed in red wine. Approx 12oz.
Drunken goat cheese (murcia al vino), a DOP cheese from the town of Jumilla in Murcia, Spain, where you might also see it called queso de cabra al vino. It's made from the pasteurized milk of local Murciana goats. The purple rind develops in a red wine bath, which also gives the semifirm cheese a slightly fruity flavor and definite wine aroma. The taste suggests the sharp tang commonly associated with goat cheese, but in a mellow "I-want-everyone-to-like-me" sort of way. Those who generally pass on goat cheese may be surprised by the decidedly un-goaty drunken goat. The whimsical name reflects its soak in the region's doble pasta red wine. It's an exceptionally creamy, bright white, semifirm goat cheese with a fruity flavor and a purple rind.
