Discover the varied flavor of artisan Manchego, the most celebrated of Spain's cheeses! This grouping of four wedges of premium Manchego cheese is presented on a black sampler board, a ready-to-serve party appetizer or hostess gift. Sip your favorite Spanish wine and indulge in a tasting flight that guides you through the aging process of authentic Manchego.
Our Manchego comes from a small artisan supplier and has a complexity of flavor you won't find at your local cheese counter. We chose four levels of aging so that you can experience how the cheese transforms over time.
Each wedge is cut in Madrid and then sealed onto an attractive black plastic slate that doubles as a serving platter. The cheese board contains descriptions of each cheese to guide your tasting.
Cheeses included in this sampler:
Baby La Mancha Cheese - A Manchego is born! This fresh, creamy cheese is very mild. In fact it is so young (less than 60 days of aging), it can't yet officially be called a Manchego. We love the bright, tangy flavor and creamy mildness. Made from pasteurized sheep's milk.
Young Manchego - With time comes character, and this 2 month cheese is firm and a touch sharp, but still boasts a mild flavor and creamy texture. Made from pasteurized sheep's milk.
Aged Manchego - After six months, this Manchego develops a nice sharpness and much firmer texture. It has a complex, nutty flavor and can hold its own with a full bodied red like Ribera del Duero. Made from unpasteurized sheep's milk.
Reserva Manchego - After a full year of aging this Manchego has all of the complexity that comes with maturity. A bright sharpness and bold flavor make this a cheese to savor. Made from unpasteurized sheep's milk.
We recommend serving artisan cheese at room temperature to bring out its full flavor.
