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...

  • 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.

  • 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

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

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!
