alvaSituated in the Beira Alta region, Felipe has been making Alva for about 6 years using milk from the Murciana goat, a rugged breed known for producing a sweet milk rich in butterfat. Washing the curds of lactose (a common practice for Goudas) yields even more sweetness. Aged for about 30 days, Alva has an invitingly gentle texture and flavor that appeals to a wide range of palates. 4/2#
