Lacey Grey is hand rolled chevre logs with a soft white bloomy rind. It also features an imported vine ash coating beneath the rind, which helps the cheese to age faster. The centre of the cheese is bright and white surrounded by a creamy smooth paste. Flavours are mildly acidic with slightly nutty notes and some herbaceous accents on the palate. They become slightly bitter where the ash blends with the rind. Accompany the cheese with acidic young white wines such as Sauvignon Blanc or Chenin Blanc.
