Rubi, meaning jewel in French is a white bloomy rind goat's cheese from Woodside made in very small batches exclusively by hand. It is dressed in beautiful edible flowers, before the cheese develops a bloomy rind. As the bloomy velvety rind envelopes the crust of the cheese, it sometimes captures the little flowers.

Rubi is mild and balanced when young, with a creamy blue flavour that imparts a slight acidity and lively and fresh lactic nature. As it matures, the cheese starts turning firmer.
