Red CloudAged / Raw Milk / Washed Rind
With its punchy, barnyard aromas tempered by hints of toasted nuts and freshly-cut grass, this complex, washed rind round is likely to appeal even to those who fear the funk. Beneath a sticky, slightly gritty red rind lies a firm, creamy paste with a pungent kick. Loves cured meat and a floral IPA, sparkling wine, or crisp white such as Pinot Gris.
Ingredients: Cultured, raw goat milk, salt, microbial rennet
