Gentle Goat, a Richard Thomas invention, is an Australian cheese made from goat's milk. Produced by Yarra Valley Dairy, it is a fresh plain soft cheese. It has a moist and creamy texture with undertones of lemon and gentle tang.  There is not better match than smoked salmon, figs and Gentle Goat. Sweet Spanish Sherry, late harvest Riesling, aged Chardonnay will serve as a good accompaniment for Gentle Goat cheese.
