A goat cheese from a small producer in León, Spain, Leonora is an exciting new import for goat cheese gourmets. This ash-covered cheese is made with the milk from cheese maker Oscar's own herd of Alpine goats. Leonora is a brick shaped, natural-mold-rind cheese which envelops a compact white paste. Although the center of the cheese is firm, it melts smoothly on your tongue. The small-batch production is evident from the layered, complex flavor and long, lingering finish. The edible rind adds a sharper note to the cheese, but even fans of mild cheese will love Leonora's delicious, grassy core. Smooth and full-bodied with just the perfect balance of acidity and tanginess, it is perfect paired with white wines.
