Capra Nouveau (also known as Capra Baby) is a rich, creamy, and smooth semi-soft cheese made using fresh milk drawn from Pure Saanen goat herds. Only the youngest, freshest milk is used to enable clean and fresh tastes in the finished cheese. Capra Nouveau is a mountain style cheese with a cider washed rind. This results in a complex, rich antique-rose rind on the outside complemented by an ivory soft, sweet, creamy body within.
The cheese is a fascinating blend of fruity aroma from the rindwashing in cider balanced by the nutty and herbaceous flavours of the paste. It tastes beautiful with a glass of fragrant Gewurztraminer, red Burgundy or an artisan cider.
This celebrated cheese has won many international awards including Super gold at the 2014 World Cheese Awards. It has been judged as one of the world's 62 best cheeses.
