Manchego Curado Cheese 6 Months
£7.60 Per 200g
The Manchego has a balanced and intense flavour and aroma with a slightly flakey texture; it has an ivory hue and a creamy taste.
This particular Manchgeo has been aged for 6 months giving it an incredibly deep and wonderfully rich flavour.
A hard, brittle cheese with a surprising moistness. The flavour yields a grassy, tangy after-note.
Flavour Profile: This cheese is intense and mature, yet not too strong with distinctive buttery notes coupled with a full and fruity flavour. It is a cheese of dimension, with an apparent acidity giving a dry tone to the cheese whilst also releasing a nutty, caramel taste.
Drinks Pairing: As with many Spanish cheeses, Manchego Curado cheese is well accompanied by any full bodied Spanish wine, we especially like it with the Rioja Crianza.
About the Maker: Created in the La Mancha region of Spain, the name of the cheese originates from the ewe’s milk used in production, which is from the Manchega breed of sheep. The location of the cheese production is so intrinsic to its production process and complex, distinctive taste that the range of cheeses have been granted the Protected Destination of Origin status.
How to Enjoy: This is just such a lovely, melt in the mouth cheese. We like to enjoy this by the shavings, either on their own or popped into a salad!
