● Semi-cured cheese made by pasteurized ewes goat milk.
● The wheel has a honey coloured and texturized rind — all from the legend that shepherds ripened the cheese curd in a typical wicker basket.
● The texture is compact and straw-yellow with mild flavour, slightly creamy, butyric and goaty when young.
● It becomes crumbly, salty with slight bitter earthy attributes and tangy flavour notes when more mature.
