Inspired by Basque shepherds who produce the famous sheep's milk cheese Ossau Iraty in the Pyrenees Mountains, David Major crafts the seasonal Verano from the summer milk of his herd of 300 sheep in the rolling hills of Vermont. The paste is smooth and dense, and flavors vary depending on where the sheep were grazing. We have noted a toasted nut, grassy, sweet and herbaceous flavor in these wheels.
