Nettle Meadow
Kunik

$17.99/EA
This triple creme from Sheila Flanagan in the South Adirondacks packs a powerful one-two punch. She first adds pasteurized goat milk for that characteristic lemony tang. Then she enriches the mixture with fatty Jersey cow cream for a mushroomy, super-buttery and almost inconceivably decadent paste. We buy the cheeses fresh from the vat and ripen them in Cave 3. The result is a guaranteed perfect rind, no ammonia and our characteristic minerally finish. It'll knock your socks off with a sparkling, fruity rose.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Rose

    We love them all! Everything from light, crisp Provence style to deep and fruity Spanish Rosados. Don’t be afraid to enjoy rosé year-round, but we like the summer staple best with refreshing, mild cheeses that are great in warm weather.
    Pair with: Young chevres like Coupole and bloomy rinds like Moses Sleeper for the lighter stuff. A darker, fruitier rosé can stand up to a heavier cheese like nutty Pecorino Oro Antico. Sparkling rosé is a perfect match for Nettle Meadow Kunik.

  • Wheat Beers

    Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit

    Pair with: Bright, tangy goat’s milk cheeses like Westfield Capri and buttery bloomy rinds like Nettle Meadow Kunik.

  • Pinot Noir

    Lighter bodied and delicate. Old World style generally offers more funk, New World more fruit.

    Old World Pinot: Flavors of fresh cherries and raspberry balanced by a barnyard funk and high minerality. Sometimes has floral aromas, reminiscent of rose petal.
    Pair with: Almost anything! Works with funky Frenchies Epoisses and Langres, or mild natural rinds like St. Nectaire.

    New World Pinot: More sugary, with jam-like fruit, dried cherries, oak, and spice.
    Pair with: Full, fatty flavors. Alpines, cheddars, and Manchego.

     

  • Sauvignon Blanc

    Typically bright and lemony, with clean citrus flavors. Can also have grassy and vegetal aromas (think green bell pepper).

    Pair with: Soft, creamy goat milk cheeses, triple crèmes or mixed milk cheeses with a mineral edge, like Nettle Meadow Kunik or La Tur.

Meet The Maker

Lorraine Lambiase and Sheila Flanagan have tended to their glorious farm in the Adirondack Mountains since 1990 - dozens of sheep, over 300 goats and a couple of llamas living off of the land and providing their milk to be turned into some of America’s most incredible cheeses. Their signature cheese, Kunik, is a triple creme made from a blend of goat and cow’s milk and is NOT to be missed!
