Stone and Crow Amiel: Review

Stone and Crow Amiel is an ash white soft goat’s milk cheese from Victoria’s Yarra Valley made from non-animal rennet so it is vegetarian friendly. It’s individual, as are all cheeses produced by Stone and Crow – they seem to pride themselves on the point. It’s very attractive to look at due to the stripes of ash on the doughnut shaped rind. As a result of this is will look wonderful on any cheese platter.

It has a even soft consistency in the paste, and is at the firmer end of the spectrum relative to other soft cheeses. The flavours have a pleasing vegetal and chalky flavours nature in the foreground, with some savoury animal flavour present too. The flavour has nice medium complexity and length. As a result they add to the pleasure from the textures and visual effect of the cheese.

Wine Matching | Wine Pairing

Try medium bodied red wine such as Hahndorf Hill Gruner Veltliner or Soumah Estate Viognier. For even more ideas see my cheese and wine pairing guide for more options.
