'Manchego 1605' Sheep's Milk Cheese, Essex St. Cheese, Spain (8oz)
'Manchego 1605' Sheep's Milk Cheese, Essex St. Cheese, Spain (8oz, Raw)
There are less than ten cheesemakers left in Spain making farmstead PDO Manchego artesano with a natural rind like the one we offer at Essex St. Cheese. Farmstead means the animals live at the same farm where the cheese is made. PDO Manchego artesano is the Spanish government's seal of approval saying this is the real deal, the same great cheese that Don Quixote enjoyed hundreds of years ago. A natural rind—unwaxed, not the artificial brown like most Manchegos you see—allows the cheese to breath; the cut cheese's aroma is clean, it smells like hay and almonds.
