roughly 5oz, goat milk
This ash-ripened goat cheese features a strong mineral structure, a savory mid-palate and a woodsy finish. Formed in the shape of a heart and featuring a striking ash-line throughout, this cheese is a show-off on a cheese board but does just as well being devoured straight from the package with whatever crackers are on hand. Try with cherry or red berry preserves for a classic pairing.
