t's not often that we can describe a cheese as refreshing, but this Texan deserves the title. Fresh goat's milk cheese is wrapped in Hoja Santa leaves - also known as pepperleaf - which imparts flavors of mint and garden fresh herbs to the light, lemony cheese. It's a great warm-weather cheese when paired with a grassy Sauvignon Blanc.

Just the Facts
Sauvignon BlancTypically 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.
Sparkling WineChampagne, Cava, Prosecco, anything with bubbles!
Pair with: The effervescence of Sparkling Wines makes for a great pairing with richer, fattier cheeses that coat the mouth: think La Tur and Brunet, or a triple creme like Brillat Savarin or Delice de Bourgogne.
TequilaWhen it comes to those clean, crisp agave flavors, Crystal is the ideal Blanco tequila. Lingering beneath, there are notes of honey, buttery-sweetness, and hints of limey citrus.
After aging in a French White Oak barrel for an entire year, Reposado emerges smooth and full-bodied. The oak imparts notes of smokiness, while hints of vanilla, lemongrass, and wildflowers lingers with each taste.
Aged for two full years in French White Oak barrels, Anejo develops into a complex balance of dried fruits and piquant spices. Toasted oak, butterscotch, and vanilla are the key flavors that linger on the tongue.
