$17.00/Each


Traditionally, fresh cheeses were dusted in wood ash to encourage the development of a molded rind, aglow with patches of blue and gray mold. The beauty of importing unaged rounds is that each goes to Murray's aging cave where we control the development of a perfect rind: thin and cohesive, with a tiny, oozing creamline atop a fluffy interior paste with the pleasant texture of damp clay. The rind delivers insistent mineral notes, while the center is all briny, goaty tang and new-mown grass. Never again eat a goat cheese with thick, soapy rind. Like many goats, this one is known for its compatibility with Sauvignon Blanc.

Pour a glass of...
  • Chenin Blanc

    Crisp and acidic with light minerality. You may smell stone fruit, apples, pear, quince, even some fresh herbs.

    Pair with: Tangy Loire Valley goat cheese to bring out crisp, mineral qualities in both. Something like Selles-sur-Cher will work perfectly!


  • Merlot

    A smooth and medium-bodied wine with a more rounded flavor than other reds. Dark fruits are present but with minimal tannins and no noticeable spice.

    Pair with: Earthy tommes like Toma Walser, mellow Fontina, or a lightly aged goat cheese like Leonora.


  • Sparkling Wine

    Champagne, 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.
