Our Red Wine Goat Cheese PDO Murcia by Palancares is one of the most classic Spanish cheeses. Made from goat’s milk and macerated in red wine from Monastrell variety grapes to give the rind the characteristic color and aroma.

Milk yield is high in Murcian goats. This goat breed has been selected over centuries and nowadays produces over 600 kg of milk per season. The milk has high average fat, protein and dry matter content, making it excellent for cheesemaking.

A cheese from Spain you should try, since it is the only European goat cheese soaked in red wine!

 

How to eat the "Murcia al Vino" cheese?

Ideal with crianza wines. It pairs perfectly with fresh grapes and a range of savory foods, such as Cantabrian anchovies and almonds.

 

Tasting notes

A pleasantly acid aroma and low salty 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 soft, creamy and elastic. The rind is smooth, very light and a characteristic wine color. The paste is dense, compact when cut, ivory-colored and may have a few small holes.
