Pressed, washed, uncooked cheese made from Murcian goat´s milk and cured for a minimum of 45 days for our version. The cheese is macerated in red wine during ripening to give the rind the characteristic color and aroma. The high skin-to-juice ratio of this wine gives it a high coloring power and tannin content as well as a strong floral aroma, all of which are passed on to the cheese.

The flavour of this cheese is a pleasantly sharp aroma and unsalty flavor. The red wine in which the cheese is soaked during ripening gives a flowery aroma and a pleasant aftertaste with reminiscences of goat’s milk and cream. The texture is creamy and elastic.
