Inspired by Selles-sur-Cher from France’s Loire Valley, Flora is a little goat disk with a coat of gray ash underneath its rippled white geotrichum rind. The ash reduces the surface acidity, making it easier for the geotrichum to grow. It’s the geotrichum that helps ripen and soften the cheese, encouraging the oozy layer,  just under the rind. Flora is new to the Capriole goat cheese line which includes iconic cheeses like Wabash Cannonball, Piper's Pyramide and Sofia. When young, Flora is tart, light and grassy and then as it matures the flavors become more intense and mushroomy.
