Cheese Maker - Woodside Cheese Wrights
Cheese Name - Virgo
Location - Woodside, Adelaide Hills, South Australia
The cheese is extremely soft, almost fragile - there's a very light, white mould that continues to develop as the cheese ages.
Next to the rind sits an almost runny layer, the cheese becomes firmer but retains a curd like appearance as you move to the centre.
This does have a pronounced goat cheese tang - it's sharp but the flavours are quite clean. It's exceptionally moist and very creamy in the mouth with low acid levels.
Compared to the Holy Goat Mature Veloute it's much more stronger in flavour - not a cheese to start with if you are a goat cheese beginner.
