Queso de Murcia

Queso de Murcia or Murcian Wine Cheese is a pasteurised goat's milk cheese from the Murcia region of Spain. It is a pressed, washed, uncooked cheese aged for a minimum of 45 days in case of wheels over 500 grams or 30 days for others.

The pate is semi-soft with small eyes, ivory white, slightly acidic and creamy to taste. On the outside, the rind appears purple, characteristic of red wine baths during maturation. As with other Spanish cheeses, Queso de Murcia is eaten with beer or wine or as a part of meal with fruits & nuts.
