Cap Cressy is a smear ripened goat cheese from the Lombardy region of Italy, imported and sold by Fifth Town Artisan Cheese. Named for the signature Cape Vessey, it is aged for a minimum of 50 days in pinewood boxes. When young, the cheese has a typical lactic goat flavour, which mellows with aging and the sweet savoury flavour takes over.  Pair Cap Cressy with a county Pinot Noir.
