Manchego is a tricky cheese. There are so many on the market, so how do you decide what is good, Manchego? We have tasted dozens and enthusiastically decided on Manchego 1605. This is one of the few Manchegos that is handmade with unpasteurized milk from a single herd of sheep and then aged with an unwaxed rind. Maria José produces it at Finca Sierra La Solana, a ranch from 1878 that also grows grapes and almonds. For us, it is not about age but flavor. These wheels taste of hay, green olive, and almonds. Manchego 1605 is truly artisan and authentic.
Farm/Producer/Importer: Finca Sierra la Solana/Queseria 1605/Essex St. Cheese Company
Place: Ciudad Real, Spain
