Melville

Melville is a fresh, soft cheese made using pasteurized goat's milk by cheese veteran Brian Civitello and Jason Sobicinski of Caseus. It is ripened for only 7 days, during which it develops a luxurious silky, satiny, pudgy and blubbery texture. Young Melville has a bright, acidic flavours balanced by mellow tartness and mild, buttery finish. As the cheese continues to ripen over the next 14 days the texture transforms into a supple, elastic and pliable state. It has now matured, with flavours of sweet, warm cultured butter.

Melville is a very versatile cheese in the kitchen. You can pair it with mushrooms, tomato, pastas, pizzas, sweet fruits preserves, wheat beers and champagne.
