Spain’s most famous cheese- mentioned in Don Quixote, our Manchego is dry and waxy in texture and has a mild, fruity taste with hints of flowers and pineapple. It is traditionally served with sweet quince paste and the combination of the two is sublime.
Manchego originally got its distinctive rind from the woven grass used to make the moulds for the cheese – although now more durable cotton and plastic are used. Manchego is made from the milk of Manchega sheep – residents of La Mancha region in Spain which is 600 meters above sea level. Our Manchego is aged for 12 months – giving it a butterscotch coloured flesh and sweet lingering flavour.
