Semi soft farm cheese from the Mediterranean mountains of Catalonia.
Made from pasteurized goat's milk, it has a natural blue-greyish mold rind, due to the extremely humid climate of the area where it is produced. The texture is buttery and creamy and its soft paste is of an intense white. It has a unique mild and long lasting taste, slightly sweet and lactic, balanced and not too goaty.
