Half wheel of Manchego cheese with cut wedge on its side

1605 Manchego

Regular price $12.86
Unit price  per 

Rustic Manchego made with a natural rind which allows the cheese to breath as it ages, creating more complex secondary flavors such as hay, almonds, brioche and pineapple. Texture-wise, this Manchego is more crumbly and smooth.

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. Essex Cheese produces it at Finca Sierra La Solana, a ranch from 1878 that also grows grapes and almonds. 

Country: Spain
Milk: Raw sheep's milk
