Javier Barrera makes artisan, small production cheeses using raw milk from small family farms in the countryside outside León.
He ages his creative cheeses on wood in a traditional underground cellar, once used as a wine bodega. This seasonal raw milk cheese is made with three milks and aged a minimum of three months in a natural cave, during which time it develops a colorful natural mold rind. It is self pressed, with a crumbly texture similar to Gamonedo. Javier writes the percentage of milks of each batch on the label. He uses local raw goat, cow, and a minimum of 50% sheep’s milk. Natural bluing can, but does not always, occur.
The cheese is salty, spicy and complex with a nutty finish. 2/3#
Complex, with earthy, salty, spicy notes followed by a nutty finish
"Serve with organic wild flower honey, sweet escalivada, alongside an earthy Cider or a young Rioja"
