Cypress Grove's Midnight Moon is a firm goat's milk cheese made in Holland exclusively for Cypress Grove and has been aged for at least 6 months. This gouda-style is smooth with a dense texture. You might experience the crispy crunch of tiny protein crystals in the cheese, like those which develop in aged goudas.
The flavor is truly approachable and lacks the gamey goat flavor that other goat cheeses can have. This cheese is nutty and buttery and slightly sweet and tangy. It has a creamy caramel flavor that lingers on the palate. This cheese is finished in a beautiful black wax that spotlights the pale ivory colored cheese.
Showcase your cheese platter with Midnight Moon and bring out its best qualities by serving with fig jam and seeded crackers or bread.
Try melted between slices of rustic sliced bread or as a decadent addition to macaroni and cheese. It is paired well with a stout or a Belgian Dark. If you prefer wine, try a Zinfandel or Syrah.
This cheese is also great for kids, or those unsure about goat cheese. It will convert even the most goat-dubious.
We hand-cut this gourmet cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound and you can also purchase a half wheel of approximately 4.5 pounds or an entire wheel of 8.5 pounds.
Ingredients:pasteurized cultured goat milk, salt, enzymes.
