Chef Lippe’s Drunken Goat cheese. Murcia al Vino. Murcia Spain
What do you get when you merge two favorites, wine and cheese, into one delicious bite? Drunken goat cheese (murcia al vino), a DOP cheese from the Murcia region of southeast Spain, where you might also see it called queso de cabra al vino. The purple rind develops in a red wine bath, which also gives the semifirm cheese a slightly fruity flavor and definite wine aroma. The taste suggests the sharp tang commonly associated with goat cheese, but in a mellow "I-want-everyone-to-like-me" sort of way. Those who generally pass on goat cheese may be surprised by the decidedly un-goaty drunken goat.
