Milawa Goats Tomme

Named for the French alpine cheese Tomme de Chévre, Milawa Goats Tomme is a true mature goat's cheese containing earthy flavours. A good semi-hard table cheese, Tomme is made from goat's milk using the farmhouse traditional method. It combines well with a fresh Chévre when cooking. As it attains maturity, it develops excellent spicy flavours that are beautifully appreciated by cheese connoisseurs.

When young, Tomme has a mild fresh taste with a creamy yet dry texture. The rind is dry, grey-brown crust covered with white moulds. As it matures, it develops on to a dry, cheddary, savoury cheese with a rich dense interior. Matches well with a good dry red wine, and a sourdough loaf.
