Pasteurised Goats Milk
This washed rind cheese is subtle but with well balanced pungency. Washed in Lake Chalice Sauvignon Blanc every other day for 2 weeks this delectable cheese takes french ideas and puts them in a NZ context. It has a lovely meaty aroma with supple velvety texture in the mouth that tastes like a rich cheese sauce when held in the mouth.This cheese is an awesome addition to a cheese board, add it to your salads or you can go a bit fancier and slightly melt over pasta, vegetables or serve with a glass of Sauvignon. Winner of a bronze medal at the 2020 NZ Cheese Awards.
Made by Simon & Hellene Lamb at the base of the Kenepuru Sound with goats milk exclusively sourced from the neighbouring farm.
Washed rind are cheeses which are periodically treated with brine. This encourages the growth of certain bacteria on their surface which give them distinctive flavours.
