T    A whole wheel of fine Spanish goat milk cheese that has been soaked in red wine, from Rocinante.

     The goat is frequently referred to as the poor man’s cow in Spain.  For centuries it accompanied Spanish shepherds and rural families normally owned a herd of goats which supplied them with milk and cheese. The goat is well-suited to Spain as it is accustomed to the hot, dry Mediterranean climate. 

      Soaking in red wine for 48 hours results in a red rind due to the pigment of the wine.  Folklore suggests maybe it was one of those farmhouse accidents: an open barrel of red wine, a wheel of goat’s cheese rolls off the table into the barrel - a few days later somebody finds themselves “decanting” the first wheel of “Cabra al Vino”!

 ·    Characteristics of this cheese are:  clean-tasting, slightly acid and moderately bitter flavor, with a slight finish of goat’s milk. Very pleasant and creamy on the palate. The aroma is slightly or moderately suggestive of goat’s milk. The texture is buttery, moist and somewhere between crumbly and elastic.

      Price is for an approx ~3kg wheel.

      Ingredients:  Pasteurised goat milk, cheese cultures, rennet, calcium chlorides, salt, lysozyme (from egg white); Inedible rind.
