Manchego Cheese

manchego cheeseManchego cheese is probably the most popular cheese from Spain; it is produced in La Mancha, made only from whole milk of the Manchega sheep. It is a rich, semi firm cheese and is naturally aged in caves for a minimum of 3 - 6 months. This method allows the cheese to produce a fine zest and exuberant flavour. Waimea Trading are proud to import one of the only Spanish handmade cheeses into Australia.

The taste of manchego cheese depends on the maturity; fresh, mild and subtle. It has a distinctive, slightly salty but not too strong flavour with a characteristic aftertaste of sheep's milk. Manchego cheese is available from Waimea Trading in three different states of maturity; fresh, this is a milk cheese that is un-cured, and embraces the strongest flavour, the 3-6 months old manchego; is a semi-cured cheese and has a more mild flavoured and the 12 month old manchego; this is fully cured and has a more subtle taste, to accompany a variety of dishes.

Manchego cheese is excellent as a dessert cheese, ideal with appetizers, cold cuts and bread, and can be a great accompaniment to any meal.

Available in 3-3.5kg wheels (minimum order 1 wheel)
