Manchego is a quintessential Spanish cheese. Originating in the La Mancha region of Spain, it is made exclusively from the milk of Manchega sheep. With a pale yellow to white coloration, it is firm, buttery and slightly piquant. Being a sheep’s milk cheese, however, it has a rich, melty quality.
The pattern embedded in the rind speaks to the traditional aging of the cheese in grass baskets. Just as you would expect, the flavor is rich, yet has a slight bite.
Each mini wheel would make an excellent focal point for a cheese tray, or a great gift for a Manchego lover. Pairs well with membrillo, Marcona almonds and a glass of sherry.
Pasteurized “Manchega” sheep's milk, salt, rennet, cheese cultures and calcium chloride. Preserving agent: egg lysozyme (from egg whites). Rind colorings: caramel.
