Medium Aged Goat Gouda
With a cheese-making process informed by over 800 years of Dutch tradition, Medium-Aged Goat Gouda is crafted from the milk of goats that graze in North Holland’s lush, fertile pastures.
The cheese is aged for four months; and the result is a beautiful, ivory-colored cheese that’s smooth and full of flavor. Its mellow, full-bodied taste is buttery, lightly sweet, and refreshing without any of the sour “goatiness” that is characteristic of some other goat cheeses. Its mild flavor is distinct without being overly powerful or pungent, making this cheese an excellent foray into the world of goat cheeses for those who have not tried them before, or a tame alternative for those who are averse to their sharp taste.
This is not the chalky, distinctly goaty chevre that most people associate goat’s milk with – instead, it hints at notes of butterscotch and caramel with only the mildest tanginess.
This cheese’s smooth, creamy texture is a perfect complement to its well-balanced flavor. This cheese is sure to be an instant favorite on any cheese plate or charcuterie board. Its mild flavor is a perfect complement to walnuts, figs, or crisp, sweet fruits like apples and pears.
