Spanish Manchego

Manchego cheese is the most important and well-known sheep's milk cheese in Spain. The shape of this cheese is very characteristic and defined, due to the traditional use of esparto grass molds, which imprints a zigzag pattern along the side of the cheese. The small wooden board used for pressing the cheese also imprints the typical wheat ear pattern on the top and bottom. The intense taste and crumbly texture make it perfect to eat it as is, with a slice of bread. The aromatic intensity of a Manzanilla wine makes it an excellent foil for this cheese. The result is a magnificent combination of aromas giving a new sensation of complexity and elegance. Each brings out the flavor of the other and the fresh aromas are reminiscent of flowers, nuts and lavender.
