Grabetto is an Australian specialty cheese produced occasionally by the Yarra Valley Dairy, Victoria with spare goat’s milk and in limited quantity. It is molded in a tiny conical shape that is only around 8 cm high and 5 cm wide at the base. The rind is white, soft and bloomy very lightly dusted with ash. The insides are a creamish white colour with a texture typical of goat’s cheeses i.e. crumbly, flaky and almost chalky.

Grabetto is sold in three types - fresh, semi-mature and mature. The flavour of fresh Grabetto is nutty which becomes sharp and tangy as it ages. Its aroma is reminiscent of herbs and grass.
