Manchego is Spain's most famous cheese. Produced in La Mancha in Central Spain, true Manchego is made from 100% sheep's milk. The abundance of wild herbs on Central Spain’s grazing lands gives Manchego a special taste and aroma. Its flavor is zesty and exuberant while its texture is firm but not dry. Manchego is prized for its rich, complex flavor and its satisfyingly grainy texture. This is the same amazing sheep’s milk cheese, just aged longer. During the additional aging, the cheese becomes firmer and dryer, adding another depth to its flavor. The texture is grainier while the flavor tends to linger even longer on your palate than the younger version. Give it a try with a bolder red Rioja.
