Manchego is quite distinctive with its herringbone design on the inedible rind. This Ewe’s milk cheese is hard, nutty & aromatic.
Manchego cheese is protected by its Denominación de Origen. This controls its production and ensures the exclusive use of milk only from the Manchega Ewe, and dictates an aging period (in natural caves) of a minimum of two months.
The taste of Manchego depends on the maturity: mild is subtle and fresh to strong and full-bodied with a tangy farmhouse flavour.
The taste is very distinctive, slightly salty but not too strong with a slight creaminess with the characteristic aftertaste of Ewe’s mik. It has a grainy texture.
Manchego is available in three different states of maturity, this one is 3-6 months old (curado). It is a firm cheese with a golden colour and small holes.
Traditionally enjoyed with Membrillo (quince jelly) or serve as tapas.
