Brinza - Feta style

Briza is feta style cheese made by the Gibbston Valley Cheese Company. Compared to traditional feta, it spends only a few days in brine resulting into a much less salty taste. Its natural sweetness and a slight citrus flavour make this sweet, delicate sheep milk cheese a great addition on a cheeseboard. The cheese is also diced in salads, crumbled and added to a frittata and layered in a vegetable stack.

Make sure to pair it with an appropriate wine such as fresh lime and Riesling or with salads or vegetables and Sauvignon Blanc.
