Bucheret is Redwood Hill Farm's bloomy, mould-ripened cheese made from pasteurized goat's milk. When young, the cheese is tangy and bright with hints of mushroom from the penicillum candidum rind. As it softens and ripens, the white, chalky paste turns dense, developing a buttery flavour and a viscous texture just under the rind. When fully aged, Bucheret is reminiscent of roasted nuts and the paste has a smooth texture.
Dry Rose, Sparkling Wine, Sauvignon Blanc, or Pinot Noir makes a great match with Bucheret. You could serve it on a cheese platter with seasonal fresh fruit, or try it for dessert, drizzled with local honey.
