Manchego Cheese Viejo (9 months)

Manchego (officially Queso Manchego) is a cheese made in the La Mancha region of Spain from the milk of sheep of the Manchega breed. Official Manchego cheese is to be aged for between 60 days and two years.

Manchego has a firm and compact consistency and a buttery texture, and often contains small, unevenly-distributed air pockets. The colour of the cheese varies from white to ivory-yellow, and the inedible rind from yellow to brownish beige. The cheese has a distinctive flavour, well developed but not too strong, creamy with a slight piquancy, and leaves an aftertaste that is characteristic of sheep’s milk.

What to look for in this product:

•Solid cured cheese that is cured for 9 months with an interesting crumbly texture
•Rich yellow in colour where the flavour has increased in complexity, with a sharp edge and an intense, peppery body

 Suggested uses:
•Perfect to eat as it is, with a slice of bread
•Focal point of antipasto, can be served with olives, sun dried tomato, crusty bread and a robust red wine
