Woodside Capricorn is a delicious, surface ripened cheese made from goat's milk, made by Woodside Cheese Wrights, Adelaide Hills, Australia.
The texture of Capricorn is fine and has a complex, subtle flavour, combining with the mushroomy influence of white mould which ripens from the outside to the inside until the white pate is broken down. When young, the Capricorn is slightly firm and creamy. Later, after four weeks of age, the cheese ripens to complex flavours and becomes oozy inside.
This is a seasonal product that is not made in winter and has won many awards such as:
- Gold medal at the 2006 Sydney Australian Specialty Cheesemakers Competition
- Gold medal at the 2006 CheeseFest South Australia
- Silver medal at the 2007 Sydney Royal Cheese & Dairy Show
- Silver medal at the 2010 Royal Queensland Food & Wine Show.
Accompany Capricorn with a pinot noir or sauvignon blanc.
