Leonora® is a soft-ripened goat's milk cheese produced in the mountainous region of Leon in northwestern Spain. Made from the pasteurized milk of Murciana goats, the brick-shaped cheese has a bloomy white rind. Initially, the texture is very smooth and dense but starts to become runny and break down just under the rind as the cheese ages. The cheese balances acidity and richness, with a mushroomy cream line that develops as it ripens.
Enjoy the cheese with a little dessert wine and some fig cakes, almonds.
