La Pardina Patacabra®
Pungent, tangy, aromatic and shaped like the leg of the animal whose milk it is made with. A washed-rind variety made in very small quantities, but worth it for this delicate cheese. When young, it is fruity and refined with a robust "kick" at the finish. With a little extra age, it becomes more pungent and powerful. The paste has welcoming notes of creme fraiche and lemon, a calm combination of acid and sweet. The meatiness of the washed rind is gentler, mellowed by the cooked cream flavor of the goat's milk. If you're looking for cohort for this Patacabra, a glass of Pinot Gris does the trick.
