This fruity, sweet ewe’s milk cheese will have your mouth watering.

A hard, brittle cheese with a surprising moistness. The flavour yields a grassy, tangy after-note.

Quote from the Cheesemonger:

“Real Spanish Manchego is my favourite cheese to snack on, especially with a chilled glass of Prosecco.” – Mollie W.

Description

Manchego is Spain’s most famous cheese and is named after the region in which it is made. La Mancha, so named to reflect the region’s weather, means land without water. Manchego is produced in extreme heat with rocky and arid surfaces. This region has herbaceous plants that are responsible for the unique flavour of Manchego as the plants are the main grazing material for Manchego sheep.

The traditional use of grass or rope moulds leaves a distinctive, characteristic zigzag pattern on the rind of the Manchego cheese. Authentic Manchego is only made from the Manchego sheep’s milk.

Manchego cheeses are best paired with soft, light and fruity wines that have a citrusy finish. Wines such as Spanish Cava or Prosecco, and Verdejo are all perfect pairs.
