Vaca al Vino results
« on: September 24, 2013, 11:50:39 AM »
I opened this cheese at a little over 4 months for a special occasion. My first attempt with soaking a cheese in wine, and first try with this tomme recipe. I was very happy with the result! It has a nice flavor with a nutty taste somewhere between a cheddar and a swiss. It is smooth and a bit dry. Near the rind I can taste the flavor of the wine. We ate half of it and I re-sealed the other half to save for another time. The weight was 1#11 oz.

Nice looking cheese, so a cheese to you! Makes me long for an opportunity to make a Cabra al Vino again. What kind of wine did you use?

This looks simply marvelous. I'm looking forward to trying a wine-soaked cheese as Murcia al vino is a favourite of mine. Did you do a single soak, or wash the cheese as it matured?
