Manchego is undoubtedly the most popular Spanish cheese, both in Spain and abroad. Named after the town of La Mancha, famous for the figure of Don Quixote, Manchego is definitely a unique cheese, which explains the DOP status that Manchego received.

This hard cheese is made using the raw sheep's milk from the local Manchega breed, which gives Manchego a very special flavor. The cheese-making process is still the same used in the past, and esparto grass molds are still used to imprint the cheese rind with the classical zig-zag pattern, while small wooden boards are used to press the two faces of the form to imprint the wheat pattern. 

When young, Manchego cheese has a mellow and smooth paste, but after a period of aging it develops a pleasant sharpness and lanolin flavor. This version is a six-month old Manchego, and although it is a quite young cheese, it has already a quite complex flavor, with a perfect balance between bite and milkiness. The texture is firm yet supple

Raw sheep's milk, traditional rennet, salt, lactic ferments
