Torta de Barros Cheese
£7.40 per 200g
There is a tradition in Spain of making ewes’ milk cheeses using cardoon thistle rennet. This leads to the cheese age from the inside out, making the middle really unctuous and oozy and resulting in a full flavour.
The flavor for this is mild and very personal, with a touch of acidity and fine herbs and a bitter aftertaste produced by its rennet. It has a creamy texture, ivory white with bright eyes unequally distributed. Its rind has a yellow-ocher colour, and it is thin and brittle.
This cheese is great with a full-flavoured, vibrant rose! Something off-dry such as the Mesta or maybe even the Rondo!
About the Maker
This cheese is from Brindisa. Brindisa comes from the word ‘brindis’, which means to raise one’s glass in a toast, and the past 30 years, Brindisa has been to toast and celebrate the varied cultures, landscapes and, above all the exceptional foods of Spain.
How to Enjoy
Enjoy this cheese at room temperature and really see just how creamy it can be! It’s great baked with a sprinkle of smoked paprika.
Our utmost concern is get you the right cheese in the right condition right to your door. With that in mind please allow 3-5 working days for your cheese box to arrive.
However the package will be posted on a next day service so as not to spend too much time in transit. Each package will come with a gel ice pack to keep the temperature in the box as low as possible.
