About the Cheese

Murcia al Vino P.D.O., also known as Drunken Goat, is a unique cheese from Spain with an original flavour profile. This artisan cheese is made from pasteurised goat's milk and immersed in red wine with Designation of Origin from the Murcia region.

The wine imparts a characteristic colour and infuses the cheese with rich wine flavours and aromas. Murcia al Vino has a smi-firm texture, low-to-medium intensity flavour, and a noticeable wine aroma near the rind.

Enjoy this semi-firm, creamy cheese with fruity white and rosé wines.
