Reserva Manchego Cheese, 12 months old, D.O.P., unpasteurised, 150g wedge

New product

Made with Manchego sheep milk from Manchega breed free-range sheep, it is aged for a minimum of 12 months until it reaches its ideal stage of readiness. Its flavour is well developed but not too strong, with a buttery and a pleasant spicy aftertaste that is characteristic of sheep’s milk. It has a firm texture with unevenly-distributed air pockets. The cheese has a yellow-white, firm, compact texture and a dark-brown, inedible rind. It is officially a "Manchego" cheese and each wedge has its unique ‘Queso Manchego DOP’ identifier.
