Capriole Goat Cheese

Perfect gifts

Artfully Chosen

Inspired by Selles-sur-Cher from France’s Loire Valley, Flora is a little goat disk with a coat of gray ash underneath its rippled white geotrichum rind. The ash reduces the surface acidity, making it easier for the geotrichum to grow. The geotrichum helps ripen and soften the cheese, encouraging the oozy layer just under the rind. Flora is new to the Capriole goat cheese line, which includes iconic cheeses like Wabash Cannonball, Piper's Pyramide, and Sofia. When young, Flora is tart, light, and grassy, and then as it matures, the flavors become more intense and mushroomy.
