This artisanal raw Manchega sheep’s milk cheese from Cuenca is hand rubbed with lard and fresh rosemary and aged in caves for eight months. Estanislao has been making the cheese for many years. The herb complements the entire complex herbal undertones of this extraordinary aged cheese. During the curing time, the cheese picks up just a little of the amazing aroma of the rosemary, adding an extra depth of flavor. It is still very much a Manchego flavor, but it is something more. Many people find it especially attractive to serve during the holidays.
This full-flavored cheese has a long finish that is enhanced rather than overwhelmed by the rosemary; it has no trace of bitterness or steeliness from the herbs.
Try Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, or Meritage wine to complement mild and creamy taste of cheese.
Unpasteurized sheep's milk, salt, rennet, cheese cultures, calcium chloride, lysozyme (from egg). Rind coverd with rosemary. Rind inedible.
