Murcia al Vino Cheese is a pasteurized goat’s milk cheese made in the Murcia region of Spain.
It has a mild, tangy taste and a moist texture.
While the rounds of cheese are maturing, they are immersed twice in red wine, which gives the rind a red colour. The rind, though, is inedible (sadly, after soaking up all that wine.)
In the United States, you may see it sold as “The Drunken Goat.”
