MITICA NAKED GOAT CHEESE
This fabulous 6-month-aged goat cheese from Spain is produced with Murciana goat’s milk. Producer Central Quesera Montesinos is an expert in goat's milk cheese, and we have partnered with them for many years on such cheeses as Drunken Goat®, Caña de Cabra, and Pimentino. Naked Goat® is mild with a sweet finish, making it an ideal introduction to goat cheese. It is also perfect for melting. For cheese plates, pair with almonds in honey, Mantovane Mostarda, or a crisp white wine. Also available in pre-cut wedges.

KEY POINTS: Mild and sweet, Naked Goat® is a perfect gateway goat cheese for those wary of pungency or chalkiness. This DOP cheese (Murcia Curado) starts out with Murciana goat’s milk, which is higher in fat and protein and contributes to the richness of the cheese.
SERVING RECS: While Naked Goat® makes a great addition to any cheese plate paired with green olives and a handful of Marcona almonds, it is also perfect for melting. Pair with a crisp unoaked Sauvignon Blanc.
