This cheese ranges from light and citrusy to firm and nutty
April 20, 2014
Made in the traditional French crottin style, Redwood Hill’s California Crottin is a 3-ounce nugget of goat cheese with a winkled rind. When young, the texture is dense, but fluffy with robust, earthy flavors; milky, creamy and lightly citrusy. After aging for about two months, this cheese becomes dense and firm with a sharper, nuttier bite. When this crottin is in its youth, it’s delicious drizzled with honey and eaten with fresh fruit. When mature, it’s spectacular over a salad or added to pasta or risotto. Try paired with a dry rose, pinot grigio or sauvignon blanc.
